Description

• 

In the first two calling sequences, the type command checks if expr is a valid Maple list or set. It returns true if expr is a list or set and false otherwise.

• 

See the list and set help pages for a description of the list and set datatypes.

• 

In the third and fourth calling sequences, where K is a specified type name, the type command checks whether expr is a list or set whose entries are of type K.  That is, type(expr, list(K)) returns true if type(expr, list) is true and type(x, K) is true for each entry x of expr. Sets are checked in a similar manner.

• 

See the type help page for a description of valid types in Maple.
