LibraryTools[UpdateFromDirectory] - update a library with all the .m files in a directory

Calling Sequence

UpdateFromDirectory( directory, archive, recurse )

Parameters

directory

-

string; directory to search for .m files

archive

-

string; Maple library

recurse

-

(optional) boolean; whether subdirectories are searched

Description

• 

The UpdateFromDirectory( directory, archive ) command searches directory and its subdirectories for .m files. It uses these files to update the library specified by archive.

• 

If archive is a directory, Maple assumes the default library name, maple.mla.  Otherwise, archive specifies the path and library name.

• 

The optional argument recurse can be used to turn off recursive searching of subdirectories.  If recurse is false, then only the specified directory is searched.

• 

Warnings are generated if the .m files do not exist in the library but searching continues.

• 

If directory does not exist, an error is generated.

• 

If archive does not specify the location of a  library, an error is generated.
