(I think this was posted in the wrong section of mapleprimes.)
I have read the manual on saving to a file many times but it never works for me.
I am using Maple 10 on a Mac running MacOS 10.4.10.
I have copied the example from the manual and run that and it does work so I am quite confused.
Here is what I would like to do: I have a worksheet with lots of definitions,equations, lists, etc. and I would like to have these available on another worksheet. I have tried
> save nx; # nx is the name of my worksheet
> read nx;
Error, unable to read `nx`
I have the same problem with trying to save names e.g.
>save d0,d1,nxbasic; # saving 2 definitions
> read nxbasic;
Error, unable to read `nxbasic`
The file nxbasic does exist; it is on my desktop (=current directory)
and I can read it using a text editor and it has what I want.
BTW, read nxbasic.txt and read "nxbasic" do not work either.
I am sure I am misreading something very trivial. Help!
