Engine.newName - create a new Name

Calling Sequence

Name newName( String str, boolean global ) throws MapleException




name to be created



true if the name should be global



The newName method creates a Name object representing the name specified by str.  If global is true then the name is global in the Maple name space.  Otherwise the name is a unique exported local variable.


Errors that occur within the Maple session are reported via errorCallBack, while other errors are raised as a MapleException.
