LibraryTools

 add all the .m files in a directory to a library

 Calling Sequence AddFromDirectory( directory, archive, recurse )

Parameters

 directory - string; directory to search for .m files archive - string; Maple library directory to process recurse - (optional) boolean; whether subdirectories are searched

Description

 • 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.
