Calling Sequence

Parameters

Description

Examples

Calling Sequence

Name newName( String str, boolean global ) throws MapleException

Parameters

str

-

name to be created

global

-

true if the name should be global

Description

• 

The newName method creates a Name object representing the name specified by str.  If global is true then the name is global in the Maple name space.  Otherwise the name is a unique exported local variable.

• 

Errors that occur within the Maple session are reported via errorCallBack, while other errors are raised as a MapleException.

Examples

import com.maplesoft.openmaple.*;

import com.maplesoft.externalcall.MapleException;

class Example

{

    public static void main( String notused[] ) throws MapleException

    {

        String[] mapleArgs = { "java" };

        Engine engine = new Engine( mapleArgs, new EngineCallBacksDefault(), null, null );

        Name name = (Name)engine.newName( "abcde", true );

        System.out.println( name );

        name.assign( engine.newNumeric( 100 ) );

        Algebraic e = engine.evaluate( "abcde:" );

        System.out.println( e );

    }

}

Executing this code produces the following output.

abcde

100
