add all the .m files in a directory to a library
AddFromDirectory( directory, archive, recurse )
string; directory to search for .m files
string; Maple library directory to process
(optional) boolean; whether subdirectories are searched
The AddFromDirectory( directory, archive ) command searches directory and its subdirectories. Files with a .m extension are added to the Maple library 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.
The AddFromDirectory( 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'.
Warnings are generated if the .m files already exist in the library, but searching continues.
If directory does not exist, an error is generated.
If archive does not specify the location of an archive, an error is generated.
