The save Statement

 Calling Sequence save name1, name2, ..., namek, fileName

Parameters

 name1, name2, ..., namek - names or symbols; sequence of one or more specified variables fileName - name or string; name of the file to use

Description

 • The save name1, name2, ..., namek, fileName function writes the specified variables name1, name2, ..., namek into fileName as a sequence of assignment statements. If a particular namei is not assigned a value, the assignment namei := namei is written.
 • Each argument except the last one is "evaluated to a name", while the last argument (the file name) is fully evaluated.
 • If fileName contains unusual characters (e.g., "/", ".", etc.) then the name must be entered as a string and enclosed in double quotes.
 • If fileName ends with the characters ".m" then namei and the assigned values are written into the file in Maple internal format. Otherwise, Maple language format is used.
 • See file for information on file names.
