I inadvertently discovered that the save command (and probably read, write, export and import commands too?) returns an error (something like "can't write ...") when the file length is too large (265 in my case).

Is this documented somewhere?
Is there a way to exceed this limit?
Assuming D=".../" and F="xxx.m", can we set the path of the directory D to some value and then use save something, F instead of save something cat(D, F) ?

Thanks in advance

I use Maple 2020 on a Windows 10 PC.

The command ssystem("CMD") enables to launch any Windows command accessible from the shell.
But how to launch a PowerShell command?

For instance ssystem("get-process") returns -1 (not surprising in fact for get-process is not a shell process).
How can I tell Maple that this command is to be found in the PowerShell ?

And even, I this possible for, in the ssystem help page, it's said that not all the command can be launched by ssystem

TIA

I have just come across this curious but really boring problem.
In the code snippet below, expr1 and expr2 are identical.

restart:
data := [a=1, b=2]:
convert(
  piecewise(And(x(t) > a, x(t) < b), 1, 0),
  Heaviside
):
expr1 := eval(eval(%, data),  x(t)=z):
plot(expr1, z=0..3);


convert(
  piecewise(And(z > a, z< b), 1, 0),
  Heaviside
):
expr2 := eval(%, data),:
plot(expr2, z=0..3);


But if I change the parameterization of the problem, expr2 is still correct but expr1 is not

restart:
data := [d=1.5, a=0.5]:
convert(
  piecewise(And(x(t) > d-a, x(t) < d+a), 1, 0),
  Heaviside
):
expr1 := eval(eval(%, data),  x(t)=z):
plot(expr1, z=0..3);


convert(
  piecewise(And(z > d-a, z< d+a), 1, 0),
  Heaviside
):
expr2 := eval(%, data),:
plot(expr2, z=0..3);

Where does this come from?

PS: I'm sorry not to be able loading the mw file

restart:

alias(f=f(t)):
alias(g=g(t)):

diff([f, g], t):  #ok

a := [alias()]:
diff(a, t);
      [0, 0]

More generally, how can we differentiate a list of aliases without naming them explicitely?

Thanks in advance

I'm adjusting a Maple 2015 code for it works correctly in Maple 2020.
A being some matrix, this command executed in Maple 2015 returns a plot with the desired color.

matrixplot(A, heights=histogram, color="X11 Thistle1")

When executed in Maple 2020 the color of the bars is desperatly black.
Note that syntaxes like color=red or color=ColorTools:-Color([1, 0, 0]), despite what seems to be said in the matrixplot help page (wherein the reference to plot:-color help page) keep returning a black plot.
The only thing I'm able to do to turn the plot to red is this

F := (x, y) -> 1:
matrixplot(A, heights=histogram, color=F)


How can I obtain a plot with the color I want?

PS: maybe I'm not very astute, but it looks like the help pages are not very explicit on this point.
