Intermediate Code Names

 • The basic structure on which both built-in and user-created language definitions operate is the intermediate form, an expression tree made of nested function calls representing a simplified form of the Maple input.
 • For a detailed listing of the members of the CodeGeneration:-Names subpackage and their function within the intermediate form, see Intermediate Code Structure.
 • The names of the functions in the intermediate form are members of the Names subpackage of the CodeGeneration package.  When writing a language definition module, it is frequently necessary to refer to these names, and is therefore often useful to use the use statement with the CodeGeneration:-Names subpackage.
