Reading and Saving Procedures and Modules from Files
You can use a text editor to create procedure and module definitions in external files. The file must contain assignment statements: f := proc ... end proc;
The freely available text editor "vim" that runs on all platforms on which Maple runs, ships with a mode for Maple syntax highlighting. Additionally, the freely available text editor "emacs" that runs on all platforms on which Maple runs, has a major mode, maplev-mode, for Maple syntax highlighting, automatic indentation, syntax checking, and an interface to the Maple help system.
To read the file into a Maple session type: read filename;
Note: If filename contains any unusual characters it must be enclosed in double quotes ( " ).
To save the contents of a Maple session into a file use the save name1, name2, ...namek, fileName command. For example, save a, b, c, "temp.m":. For specific instructions, see save.
Procedures can be read faster by saving them in Maple internal format, that is, saving the filename with the file extension .m. For example, save "f.m" and in a later session, read "f.m" For details, see file.
