 lprint - Maple Programming Help

lprint

linear printing of expressions

 Calling Sequence lprint(expr1, expr2, ...)

Parameters

 expr1, expr2, ... - any expressions

Description

 • The procedure lprint returns NULL and prints its arguments in a one-dimensional format.
 • The expressions expr1, expr2,..., each separated from the others by a comma and a space, are printed on a single line.
 • Like most procedures in Maple, the arguments to lprint are evaluated before being passed to the procedure.
 • In general, the printed form produced by lprint is valid Maple input.
 • Maple will print all expressions after normal evaluation using lprint if the interface variable prettyprint is set to $0$.
 • The procedure lprint displays output as a side-effect, and returns NULL as the procedure value. Therefore the ditto commands, %, %% and %%%, will not recall the output from the lprint command.
 • The procedure lprint is intended for device independent printing and makes no use of special features of the user interface. For pretty-printing, using a two-dimensional output format, see print. For formatted output, see printf and fprintf.

 • The lprint command is thread-safe as of Maple 15.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{lprint}\left(3{x}^{2},x,\mathrm{Int}\left(\frac{\mathrm{sin}\left(x+y\right)}{x-y},x\right)\right)$
 3*x^2, x, Int(sin(x+y)/(x-y),x)

Arguments are evaluated before printing.

 > $\mathrm{lprint}\left(\mathrm{int}\left(\frac{\mathrm{sin}\left(x+y\right)}{x-y},x\right)\right)$
 Si(x-y)*cos(2*y)+Ci(x-y)*sin(2*y)

Note: In command-line Maple, the output of lprint can be cut and pasted into a Maple session while pretty-printed output cannot be.

 > $g≔\frac{{x}^{4}-y}{{y}^{2}-3x}:$
 > $\mathrm{lprint}\left(g\right)$
 (x^4-y)/(y^2-3*x)
 > $\mathrm{print}\left(g\right)$
 $\frac{{{x}}^{{4}}{-}{y}}{{{y}}^{{2}}{-}{3}{}{x}}$ (1)

The interface setting of pretty print determines whether line printing or pretty-printing is used to display the results of normal evaluation.

 > $g$
 $\frac{{{x}}^{{4}}{-}{y}}{{{y}}^{{2}}{-}{3}{}{x}}$ (2)
 > $\mathrm{interface}\left('\mathrm{prettyprint}'=0\right)$
 Typesetting:-mn("3"), 
 > $g$
 (x^4-y)/(y^2-3*x)
