The read Statement

Calling Sequence

read filename




name or string



The read statement is used to read Maple language files into Maple.


If the filename ends with the characters ".m", the file is assumed to be in Maple internal format. The objects stored in the file are read into Maple and become available for use. This functionality is not intended for end users.


If the file is in Maple language format, the statements in the file are read and executed as if they were being entered into Maple interactively, except that they are not echoed to the display unless interface(echo) is set to two or higher.


If filename contains unusual characters (such as, "/" and "."), then the name must be enclosed in quotation marks. For more information on filenames, see file.
