I cant see anything about this on the kernelopts help page

@Joe Riel 

Yeah it's essentially for situations I anticipate the while loop to continue indefinately,but this being inductive reasoning of course is not fail proof, so I let the loop run, and need the data written to a text file when I interrupt the loop, as such that it is read the next time i execute it, picking up where it left off as opposed to repeated computations that were already made in the last execution.

But the break command is the same thing as hitting the interrupt button really so this is just making a copy of the button within the worksheet.


@acer but ok i shall attempt to do this despite it normally pay walling me

Maple Worksheet - Error

Failed to load the worksheet /maplenet/convert/ .


@acer a bat file is executed every hour that pipes the output of the command "tasklist" to a csv file, and this worksheet then imports it and filters the data dowm to the processes that are being initiated by a user that isn't me (VAGRANTASP\Adam) and writes it to another csv, which i planned to be read as input in another bat file that kills those processes one by one

@acer no no I didnt intend on the backslash escaping thankyou

@Carl Love I have only transitioned to linux in the last two years, and it has gone exceedingly well, but my primary machine is still windows 10, I will download the program you mentioned that acts as a linux terminal emulator for windows seeings achieving this on win10 alone will take alot of annoying bother that is straight forward on linux.

On a different note, if i recieve a memory related quadratic sieve error, does this necessarily mean that my last computation involves an attempt to factorize a number larger than RSA-129? It's just that if it were associated with the physical limitations of my CPU I feel that the error message referring to the quadratoc sieve algorithim is somewhat misleading

This is definately an inspirational story and good advice to many pursuing a career path, regardless of gender, a very small minority to which it would be unapplicable indeed!

@Carl Love ok I will give that a try I do have a linux VM managed by Oracle VM but running this as well as maple simultaneously seems to encounter alot of crashes in one or the other for some reason

@acer  ok so another way i could possibly achieve the same result is to have a script looking at the list of processes my computer currently has running, and if the number of kernel instances drops below a pre-defined expected number, it sends the necessary keystrokes to maple to save the worksheet close it then reopen it?

@Carl Love 

Ok alot of people keep saying i need to stop using maple and use the relevant linux packages for text processing requirements but its a little difficult for me to just stop using maple after almost 15 years of that being the thing i use, and i dont have maple on my linux computers
