Description

• 

The Value command accepts an inert-form structure and returns an expression without any inert `%` prefixed names or operators.  This command provides the same functionality as the top-level value command when the valuateoperandsofindexedinertnames=true option is added.

• 

The returned expression is a regular Maple expression to which all evaluation and simplification rules apply.  As such, simple arithmetic that was preserved in the inert-form will not be preserved in the evaluated result.

Package Usage

• 

This function is part of the InertForm package, so it can be used in the short form Value(..) only after executing the command with(InertForm). However, it can always be accessed through the long form of the command by using InertForm[Value](..).

Examples

Compatibility

The InertForm[Value] command was introduced in Maple 18.
