 Error, assigning to a long list, please use Arrays - Maple Help

Error, assigning to a long list, please use Arrays Description Lists in Maple are immutable, that is, with l := 2 you create a copy of l and change the first element of this second list. You now have two lists in memory. Repeating this many times produces a different copy of the list each time; as a result, this error may occur because copying the entire list requires a significant amount of memory.   Arrays, on the other hand, can be modified in place and therefore use less memory. For example, by reassigning A, you do not allocate new memory. Examples

 > $l≔\left[\mathrm{seq}\left(i,i=1..200\right)\right]:\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.0em}{0.0ex}}l\left[1\right]≔2;$

Solution: use Arrays

 >
 ${{l}}_{{1}}{:=}{2}$ (2.1)
 > $l$
 $\left[\begin{array}{c}{\mathrm{1 .. 200}}{\mathrm{Array}}\\ {\mathrm{Data Type:}}{\mathrm{anything}}\\ {\mathrm{Storage:}}{\mathrm{rectangular}}\\ {\mathrm{Order:}}{\mathrm{Fortran_order}}\end{array}\right]$ (2.2) See Also
