I have been unable to successfully open a text file for writing in MAPLEPLAYER, whether it is requested in the startup code section or via a document tools button.  Is there a way to write to a file in MAPLEPLAYER?  It returns a "no write access" statement.

The write works perfectly in MAPLE 2015.1


I have created and saved a MAPLE module in an .mla archive. The module contains three procedures A, B, C, where

A calls, B and C.  

Once the module library has been loaded, A acccepts inputs and generates outputs.

Is it possible to create a MAPLE player worksheet which calls the module and share it with a Maple Player (only) user, so that they can then supply the inputs and observe the outputs from A using the Maple Player programme components?

Can anyone help?





I have three procedures with calling struture:


    > call B (argseq)

    > call C (argseq)

     > etc code

     > return results

end A()

Procedures A, B, C are defined in a single MAPLE .mw worksheet, and each time I use them I have to reload them by pressing return.

Please can you suggest the best course of action?  I have been reading about modules but am not certain that A knows about B and C in the dame module when it calls them

Can anyone help please?




I've created compiled and executed Fortran 77 code, and then created a .dll file - using g77, for calling as external function in MAPLE 18. I have received the following : Error loading external library. Details are below. Can anyone explain what is going wrong?

Below is the history the steps I have taken:

Here is the contenct of my FORTAN source code file: test2.for 

REAL x,y, mult
x = 4.0
y = 3.0
OUT = mult(y,x)
11 FORMAT(1X,3E12.4)

function mult( a, b )
REAL a,b, mult
mult = a*b

The compile, execute and shared library creation steps are as follows  (using g77):

g77 -v -Wall -c -malign-double test2.for
g77 -v "test2.for" -o "test2" 
..execution ran successfully. Creation of dll:

g77 -s -o "test2.dll" "test2.for"

...this executed successfully

Defining as external function in MAPLE:
fmult := define_external('mult', LIB = "S:/MRBwork/IT/Fortran/projects/MAPLE - Fortran/CERN primes/test2.dll", FORTRAN, 'a'::(float[4]), 'b'::(float[4]), RETURN::(float[4]))

... but received following error.

Error, external linking: error loading external library S:/MRBwork/IT/Fortran/projects/MAPLE - Fortran/CERN primes/test2.dll: @�b%

Can someone take and look at the above and explain what may be causing the erroo ion the loading the .dll file?



I am running under Windows 7 and using the following command in a MAPLE .mw file to convert a group of .mw files to WWW format:

MapleWWWW:-Install("S:/MRBwork/Phd/SOFTWARE/MAPLE/R4&5/Conversions to MAPLE WWW/Input/","S:/MRBwork/Phd/SOFTWARE/MAPLE/R4&5/Conversions to MAPLE WWW/Output/","");
Error: FileTools:-Text:-ReadFile("file or directory does not exist: %1")
Error: FileTools:-Text:-ReadFile("file or directory does not exist: %1")

As you can see I am getting an error return. I believe I have placed the module in the right directory. As a test I ran the following:

FileTools[IsReadable]("S:/MRBwork/Phd/SOFTWARE/MAPLE/R4&5/Conversions to MAPLE WWW/Input/"); FileTools[IsReadable]("S:/MRBwork/Phd/SOFTWARE/MAPLE/R4&5/Conversions to MAPLE WWW/Output/");

So both folders are recognised by MAPLE.

Can anyone help debug this please?
