Worksheet[ToString] - convert a XML tree data structure representing a worksheet in the specified format and return it as a Maple string

Calling Sequence

ToString(xmlTree, format=output_format)

Parameters

xmlTree

-

Maple XML tree; worksheet

format=output_format

-

(optional) equation; output_format can be one of "mws", "maple8_xml", or "mw" (default)

Description

• 

The ToString(xmlTree) calling sequence formats the XML document xmlTree representing a Maple worksheet as a MWS document (stored as a Maple string).

  

It is assumed that the XML document that is written to a string represents a valid worksheet. (Maple performs only a surface check.)

  

The returned XML document is formatted without line breaking or indentation of any kind. As a result, regardless of size, the document is returned as a single line of text.

Examples

The following examples demonstrate how a Maple XML tree data structure can be converted and returned as a string.

The ToString command converts the XML tree data structure doc and returns it as a Maple string str.

withWorksheet:

str:={VERSION 5 0 "SUN SPARC SOLARIS" "5.0" }{USTYLETAB }{SECT 0 {EXCHG {PARA 0 "" 0 "" {TEXT -1 21 "Very simple worksheet" }}{PARA 0 "> " 0 ""{MPLTEXT 1 0 16 "with(Worksheet);"}}}{EXCHG {PARA 0 "> " 0 "" {MPLTEXT 1 0 0 "" }}}}{MARK "1 0 0" 0 }{VIEWOPTS 1 1 0 1 1 1803 1 1 1 1 }{PAGENUMBERS 0 1 2 33 1 1 }

str:={VERSION 5 0 "SUN SPARC SOLARIS" "5.0" }{USTYLETAB }{SECT 0 {EXCHG {PARA 0 "" 0 "" {TEXT -1 21 "Very simple worksheet" }}{PARA 0 "> " 0 ""{MPLTEXT 1 0 16 "with(Worksheet);"}}}{EXCHG {PARA 0 "> " 0 "" {MPLTEXT 1 0 0 "" }}}}{MARK "1 0 0" 0 }{VIEWOPTS 1 1 0 1 1 1803 1 1 1 1 }{PAGENUMBERS 0 1 2 33 1 1 }

str1:=ToStringdoc,format=mws:

str2:=ToStringdoc,format=maple8_xml:

str3:=ToStringdoc,format=mw:

The string str is parsed and converted back to an XML tree data structure doc1 by using the FromString command.

doc1:=FromStringstr:

The Display command launches the worksheets. The Display command launches the string str and the XML tree doc1. For information on Display command parameters, see Worksheet[Display].
