Question: Reading a text file

This happens every single time I try to do this and I need to resolve it once and for all.


I have a text file called be which is sitting on my desktop. It consists of two columns of data seperated by whitespace. How do I get maple to read this file? The help pages are of no use since it just tells me to do something like...


readdata(be,2): or readdata(be,1):

both of give the same "Error, (in readline) file or directory does not exist" thing as well as any variant of the above.


So I need to finally know what I'm supposed to do! In the readdata help page, where is the data file? Is it on the desktop, in the same folder as the maple file? Is it in program files in C..?

Please Wait...
