I'm running Maple 10.02, Mac OS X.4.3, and Java 1.5, and when I give Maple an inverse laplace transform with a number, it returns the correct answer. But when I give it the same thing but replace the number with an arbitrary constant (i.e., I replaced 4 with k) it doesn't seem to be able to figure it out. Any suggestions on this?

This is regarding an earlier thread about Maple's misleading output of exponentials. Here is a link with a screenshot of what I am talking about: Maple output It seems like no one else is experiencing this problem. Maybe it has something to do with the version of java or OS X I am running, which is OS 10.4.3, Java 1.5, and Maple 10.01.
Try typing the following input in Maple 10.01 in 2D mode (on Mac OS X) input: (e) output: e when in fact what maple means is this: e The intended answer appears when you call simplify on the first result, but this seems dangerously easy to confuse, especially for inexperienced maple users, or if this was returned as the answer to a problem (like taking residues, where I discovered it) it could be easily overlooked -Matt
I think an excellent feature for Maple would be an auto-complete function similar to what they have in software integrated development environments like MS Visual Studio, i.e., when you begin typing a command, a small window pops up and displays the possible command completions, parameter list etc. This would be easier than typing Command-Shift-Space to complete commands, and if the parameter list and a small instruction could be included in the pop-up window, I think this would save loads of time, as it seems I spend half my time in the help browser looking up function calling sequences that I have forgotten.
I'm running Maple 10.01 under Mac OS X ( 10.4.2), and when set my Java Preferences so that the J2SE 5.0 being used in the runtime environment, Maple will not open and gives the following error: Uncaught exception in main method: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/crimson/parser/XMLReaderImpl Maple works fine for me when the runtime environment is set to use J2SE 1.4.2. -Matt
