Maple Versions

  

You can access the power of the Maple computation engine through a variety of user interfaces: the Standard Worksheet, the Command-line version, the Classic Worksheet, and custom-built Maplet applications.

  

Maple provides users with two worksheet interfaces. Both have access to the full mathematical engine of Maple and take advantage of the new functionality in Maple 2019. By default, worksheets open in the enhanced and more modern Standard Worksheet. The Classic Worksheet, available on certain platforms (see below), has the traditional Maple worksheet look and uses less memory.

Standard Worksheet

  

The Standard Worksheet contains the full-featured interface. To access the Standard Worksheet, click the Maple 2019 icon. For example, using Windows:

• 

From the Start menu, select All Programs > Maple 2019 > Maple 2019.

Command-line Version

  

The Command-line version does not include graphical user interfaces features, but this method is recommended when solving very large complex problems or using scripts for batch processing.

  

To access the Command-line version in Mac, use the maple command.  In Windows, use the cmaple command.  For more information on the Command-line version, including Command-line options, see maple. Alternatively, to access the Command-line version using Windows, click the Command-line version icon.

• 

From the Start menu, select All Programs > Maple 2019 > Command-line Maple 2019.

Classic Worksheet

  

The Classic Worksheet provides a basic worksheet environment for older computers with limited memory. If your system has less than the recommended amount of physical memory, it is suggested that you use the Classic Worksheet version. For system requirements, refer to the Install.html file on your installation disc, or visit to the webpage https://www.maplesoft.com/products/system_requirements.aspx.

  

Note: The Classic Worksheet is available on 32-bit Windows platforms. To access the Classic Worksheet, click the Classic Worksheet icon. For example, using Windows:

• 

From the Start menu, select All Programs > Maple 2019 > Classic Worksheet Maple 2019.

Maplet Applications

  

The Maplet User Interface Customization system allows you to create windows, dialogs, and other visual interfaces that interact with a user to provide the power of Maple. Users can perform calculations or plot functions without using the Standard Worksheet interface.  A Maplet application is a collection of elements including, but not limited to, windows and their associated layouts, dialogs, and actions. To create Maplet applications, you can use the Maplets package or the Maplet Builder.

  

For information and examples, see the Maplets and MapletViewer help pages.

  

To view examples of built-in Maplet applications, see the interactive tutors in the Student[Calculus1] package.
