Calling Sequence

Parameters

Description

Examples

Calling Sequence

BuildFromDirectory( directory, archive, recurse )

Parameters

directory

-

string; directory to search for .m files

archive

-

string; name of the library to create

recurse

-

(optional) boolean; whether subdirectories are searched

Description

• 

The BuildFromDirectory( directory, archive ) command searches directory and its subdirectories for files with a .m extension. The Maple library specified by archive is created to store these .m files.

• 

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.

• 

The BuildFromDirectory( directory, archive ) command uses the pathname of the .m file relative to directory as the indexname.  The file directory/subdir1/subdir2/file.m is given the indexname 'subdir1/subdir2/file.m'.  As well, the / character is used as the directory separator on all platforms.  Therefore the file windows\dotfiles\foo.m has indexname 'windows/dotfiles/foo.m'.

• 

If directory does not exist, an error is generated.

• 

If the specified library exists or the library could not be created, an error is generated. (See march.)
