    savePackageToMla := proc(mlaPath, mplPath, packageName)


        LibraryTools:-Save(packageName, mlaPath);


I'd like to automate my workflow a bit. I having a hard time making savePackageToMla work. The commands inside it are the ones I would run in a Maple worksheet to save a package to an .mla file.

The error I get when I try to use this is

Error, (in LibraryTools:-Save) 1st variable is not a name or equation |/Users/marcusegues/maple/Packages/MyPackageTools/MyPackageTools.mpl:38|

Note that the goal is to pass in an mla path and an mpl path. The mpl file is read. The package that is read is the same as the argument packageName. 

I invoke this procedure with something like

savePackageToMla(mlaPath, mplPath, 'MyPackage')


mplPath := '/somePath/MyPackage.mpl';
mlaPath := 'somePath/MyPackage.mla';

and MyPackage.mpl contains something like

MyPackage := module()
  option package;

Is their anyway we can find the bond lengths of amolecule using maplesoft given smiles file or mol file etc. any chemistry package

Like we can do do using rdkit or pysmiles in python.

Please help me consider the convergence of this improper integral without using Maple. Thank you so much.

Note: It seems in the course of writing this question I found the answer, but I am still interested in any tips on the best workflow to update a library. Here is the original post (annotated ex post in bold):

I have successully created my own package in Maple. I basically used LibraryTools:-Create to create an .mla file and then I used LibraryTools:-Save, passing in the name of my package and the path to the .mla file. I did this in a worksheet.

I can import it with the command with(MyPackage).

I'd like to add code to the package.

I have a package defined in as

module MyPackage()
  option package;
  export MyModule;

  module MyModule()

I would like to add a procedure to be exported inside the package.

I tried to add the procedure, save the file, and then use LibraryTools:-Save again, but the error I get is 

Error (in MyPackage) attempting to assign to 'MyPackage' which is protected. Try declaring local 'MyPackage'; see ?protect for details.

I tried to unprotect the name 'MyPackage' but this gives another error

Error, on line %1, unexpected end of input. Error while reading '%1' (this turned out to be a missing semicolon on the Save command, which was the last command in the mpl file. The error messags are quite unhelpful)

Note: As I mentioned before, I did the initial saving of the package from a worksheet (the package code was in a code editing region in the worksheet). In the current attempt to add the new procedure, I copied the code to an .mpl file so I could edit it in a code editor (VSCode). At the end of this file I added the commands to LibraryTools:-Save the package again to the same .mla file as before.

My attempt to unprotect the name "MyPackage" involved simply adding unprotect('MyPackage') as the first line in this .mpl file.

I then used the command read to execute the mpl file from within a worksheet.

What am I doing wrong, and what is the recommended workflow to be able to work on a package?

If I try to update a simple variable in the .mla file it seems to work.

EDIT: The problem seems to be the use of the named module initially, ie module MyPackage().

If I try the whole process again (write a simple package and save it to the mla file) but this time I use the syntax

MyTestPackage = module()

then I can update it no problem (at least for a simple package that I just wrote; for the actual package with my real code I still get even though Maple is able to read the mpl file without a problem, apparently there is still some issue while trying to save. 

Error, on line %1, unexpected end of input. Error while reading '%1'   (turns out it was the missing semicolon)

In summary: don't used named module syntax.

Hello guys.
I want to solve Laplace's equation for a triangle plate, subject to the following boundary conditions:

For the contour y = x, u(x,y) =20

For the contour y = -x+2, u(x,y) =100




Hi maple users 

I am working with the PDE solver.

i am receiving a following error

"unable to compute solution for t>HFloat(0.0):" 

Kindly do the needful how to rectify this error.


HHow do i correct "error, illegal use of an object as a name"

Hi got this set of error using the Plot package. Anyone here know what they mean? 

Maple offers the dimension “lenght” whereas MapleSim offers two types.

What is the difference between the two types length and distance?

Can they always be used interchangeably?
