## How to save a Maple file on a text mode ...

Maple 2018

I'm using Maple on a compute server (via Putty from my computer which has windows system). It is an only-text mode server so it is a black screen and text and no menu bar to choose file and then save by clicking etc. You only can write commands and press Enter.

The IT section suggested to use writeto("filename.txt"), but I can't see any file on my drive, I used writeto("\drvename\filename.txt"), but still nothing.

Thanks to @acer@Joe Riel and the IT section. The problem now is solved. It was about the way that I was writing the directory path. I had to add something before the "drivename" in my case. Plus that it is a Unix path, so I should use / not \.

## Why the numeric integration of Maple som...

Maple 2018

Here I put two functions defined by piece-wise command and then using int(...,numeric) to take their integration but Maple computes only one while for the other one just gives the expression back. The integration domain is bounded, the function is bounded too so I don't think the reason is being divergent in the one that Maple is not computing it.

Is there any prepared command or package for Maple which computes the integrals like this or is better than just int(...,numeric)? Or I have to write an algorithm an force Maple to compute my integral using an algorithm given by myself?

The codes in plain text:

`int(piecewise(0 < -k5*x1*x2+k1*x1 < 1, 1, -k5*x1*x2+k1*x1 <= 0 and 1 <= -k5*x1*x2+k1*x1, 0)*piecewise(0 < -k5*x1*x2+k2*x2 < 1, 1, -k5*x1*x2+k2*x2 <= 0 and 1 <= -k5*x1*x2+k2*x2, 0), k1 = 0 .. 1, k2 = 0 .. 1, k5 = 0 .. 1, x1 = 0 .. 1, x2 = 0 .. 1, numeric);`
`int(piecewise(0 < x+y < 1, 1, x+y <= 0 and 1 <= x+y, 0)*piecewise(0 < y*x^2 < 1, 1, y*x^2 <= 0 and 1 <= y*x^2, 0), x = 0 .. 1, y = 0 .. 1, numeric);`

## Why Grid:-Map copies one computation for...

Maple 2018

We know that Grid:-Map(x->f(x),[x1..xn]) is for parallel computing f(xi)'s but when some xi's are equal I think Maple copies one result for the others. But maybe my function f has some random sampling inside and so will have different output for same inputs. So I need to do parallel computations for same inputs without cheating of copying the result of one for the rest. For a very simple case that Maple copies while it is wrong to copy, see the following.

I will be happy if someone tells me how to solve this issue. Thanks.

More surprising to me is that if I try to use different xi's and then typing same xi's, I will see some new patterns of copying.

For example in output (3) and (4), first random point of one parallel computation is the second random point of another computation. Or in output (6) only the two last computations are copy of each other!

I may need to add that I did this computations on a computer with 4 core processor. Is Maple producing random numbers using something like processor's time? Or something like this?
I can't report Maple computations if they don't really produce random points independently in seperate parallel computations.

## Why floor command doesn't work if one ty...

Maple 2018

If I type pi, Maple just show what I typed, but if I insert the Greek letter pi, then it works. Are there other things that I should take care of them when I'm using "floor" command in my programming?

## How to get the computation time when I u...

Maple 2017

I was using the following idea to get the computation time of my computations in Maple;

```s:=time():
my computation
print(time()-s);```

But it seems if I use

`Grid:-Map(m->My computation(m),[some sequence]);`

Where the sequence has more than one element, this idea doesn't work! It seems Maple time() remains fixed during this Grid:-Map when the sequence has more than one element. So then how should I check the computation time?

In the following pictures you can see when the sequence has one element, it works normal, but when it has two elements, it doesn't work the same.
