Maple Library Archive (.mla) Format

MLA file format

 

Description

Examples

Description

• 

MLA (Maple Library Archive) is a binary file format for a Maple repository.  A repository stores arbitrary Maple data including expressions, procedures, and modules.

• 

Objects stored in in this format are stored in an Maple internal format which can be read by Maple faster than objects stored in a text-based format such as an MPL file.

• 

MLA files are used by Maple for storing its own predefined mathematical library routines and data.

• 

MLA files can be created, modified, or read using the LibraryTools package commands or the march command.

• 

In Workbook files, MLA files can be created, modified, or attached using the savelib command or PackageTools package commands.
