@Carl Love yes but this is obviously very straight forward if we want to have a public IP camera with an address that maple accepts i feel as if the value in my ramble is lost if i dont emphasize i only want it to be streamed to local link addresses in my network, I'm just so pretty and charming carl i cant risk the internet falling in love :-P 

@Carl Love  well my computing knowledge is very much in it's infancy at this point, and I had gone ahead and gotten a little grandiose in invisaging a more sophisticated design to the basic stratedgy i have decided to go with, and that is simply using the StringTools package with maplets to essentially display all the matches for the regular expression i punch into a text box, then copying it to the clipboard or piping it to my linux VMs with netcat or something,but yes eventually having an interactive or bilateral data exchange between a maple session and the linux virtual machines I am learning in would be ideal. 

But again I have been geting very overwhelmed with the computing terminology I've had to absorb and reabsorb, so I don't think me attempting to elaborate any further will be of benefit, it might be best if I bookmark the question and paraphrase at a later date when I know what I am talking about. 

@Rouben Rostamian  


I have undertaken a significant project of becoming linux proficient so that's always welcome assistance there, basically I want to be able to pipe output from maple to the command line of the host operating system, which is windows 10 at the moment, once the coin jar fills up to buy another maple install it will literally only matter with regard to linux, but none the less my  only forseeable need is  for passing instructions to the host OS when the maple command does not exist and the tasks required cannot be done directly from within a maple worksheet.

@Joe Riel  I'm still using 16 but my point is that i have used that package a ton without any issue before

@Carl Love 


Ok thanks again Carl and very much appreciated as always. I'll keep the worksheet open and leave it here for now, until I can get a better grip on what it is i am trying to ask here.


If you know of any open source IDE or external references regarding the nature of random number generators that might help me get a clue that would also be appreciated.

@acer correct i attempted to debug maple using Microsoft Visual Studio, and it was the output from this that declared that PDB files were unable to be found for some modules.



ok thanks tom interesting this would be so crucial

@Carl Love Ok sure thankyou for this, I have just always wondered how and felt silly asking. I still have this idea floating around in my head where I want an educational interface that effectively "locks out" the student from certain features of the maple interface, isolating their use as kind of subconcious way of developing good habits? ok I realise it sounds like I am describing mind control but I can assure you this isnt a revamp of MK Ultra or Facebook. 


what i mean is there are fairly standard kinds of investigative procedures that all users conduct as they look at whatever they please, so what i am suggesting is for example a student has used curve fitting packages to try and model data, at a certain point the interface closes command line interface and opens up a window where they are asked to write a 100 word commentary on the last 4 command lines executed.


Or another example, like my problem, the pallette is locked out and the user is asked to write in 1-D code only.

Or suppose latex documentation is a habit that is desirable for the student and the student doesnt agree for a long time because he wants to be special in some kind of silly way, features are locked out and they are required to look at the latex conversions, (most of the typesetting stuff i need to think about is to fix all the little asthetic problems that occur in the latex()  command)



anyway that sort of thing i think would be great fir early education programs.


tomleslie  ok great it looks like ive got the right version

@J F Ogilvie 
I'm sorry Sir i am family with Heun, but I have no knowledge of the others you refer to, so I would need to see what you are refering to in an algebraic expression to give my limited opinion on the matter.

@ecterrab  Sure thanks for that, I have purchased a new book called "Understanding Maple" and so I am quite confident that I will be able to build my own function database and an interface for adding new entries to it, so once I have completed that, I will simply write some code for regularly importing the content of Function Advisor into my personal database as appropriate.

@acer ok thanks the so I guess now all i need to know is why it produces a complex number, when I never introduced a complex variable? 

Also because it is a simplification that is concealed in an inner level of abstraction of evalf, i need to know the showstat for evalf so that I can further understand the causation of the invalid computation please thank you in advance sir very kind


you have a different expression to what I had

evalf[10](exp(-(1/2)*LambertW(1, 2*exp(2))+1) = simplify(exp(-(1/2)*LambertW(1, 2*exp(2))+1)));


-1.236756628-.9959964853*I = 1.236756627+.9959964845*I

@vv  well no there is no good reason to be studying math in general really is there I don't see what you mean here
