Suppose I have a file of text that I would like to read into a Maple (16) worksheet as a string. (I have in mind encrypting the string using the RSA encryption scheme.)

If I paste the text directly into the worksheet and surround it by ",  I have no problem, but if I try to read, for example, a file some_text.txt using a command like


Does anyone happen to have a worksheet that implements LinearAlgebra[Generic][SmithForm] 

for Euclidean domains like Z[w], w^3 = 1, or Z[sqrt(d)] where d = −11, −7, −3, −2, −1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 21, 29, 33, 37, 41, 57, 73?

If so I would greatly appreciate receiving a copy of it.

Recently I was looking at an algorithm in one of Knuth's books.

The algorithm is described in steps with many of the form 

if condition 1 then goto step 7; if condition 2 go to step 8, 


I managed to write up the algorithm by making each step

a procedure, but had trouble with handling global variables.


Is there in Maple some standard method for dealing with such algorithms.

A friend tells me...

I have tried unsuccessfully to follow the help but cannot figure it out.

I am using Maple 12 Standard with Windows XP.   I found the palette "Diacritical Marks" so I can make an umlaut and a u. I have tried various combinations of Crtl+R, Crtl + Shift, Ctrl + Alt  +O but wasn't able to find the right combination.  Could someone please tell me the right key stroke sequence.  I can manage to get the umlaut over the u, but it is too high up. :-(




How can one avoid getting a > at the beginning of each line when pasting in several lines of Maple code taken from some other word processor?  I am sure this has been answered many times, but I cannot find the answer now.
