type/sequential

check for a sequential object

 Calling Sequence type(expr, sequential) type(expr, sequential(K))

Parameters

 expr - expression K - type

Description

 • The type(expr, sequential) calling sequence returns true if expr is any one of the following types of Maple objects.

 • The type(expr, sequential(K)) calling sequence returns true if expr is of type sequential and type(x, K) is true for each element x in expr.
 • The type(expr, sequential(K)) calling sequence returns true if expr is of type sequential and type(x, K) is true for each element x in expr.
 • An expression sequence is also of type sequential. Please note that type((1,2),sequential) will return an error, since it simplifies to type(1,2,sequential) and checks that 1 is of type 2. However, evalb((1,2)::sequential) returns true.
