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

Calling Sequence

UpdateFromDirectory( directory, archive, recurse )




string; directory to search for .m files



string; Maple library



(optional) boolean; whether subdirectories are searched



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.
