Good point about the examples in Maple's help. My biggest complaint with Maple is not the help per se, but the search ability of the help. For example, say you are new to maple and you want to do just about the simplest thing you could want to do with a CAS, define a function. So you open up the Maple help and type in: function. You will get about 20 returns, none of which look, by reading the search results section, like they will tell you how to define a function. So you might (like I did) try to enter: define a function which gets you NO results! This is the problem, I wish I could set it up so that google could search through the Maple help, I think my complaint would disovle. There a literally dozens of times I have run into this. Once I finally do figure out the magic combination to get to where I want, the help is good.
