MapleListAlloc

create a list in external code

MapleListAssign

assign into a list in external code

MapleListSelect

select from a list in external code

 Calling Sequence MapleListAlloc(kv, n) MapleListAssign(kv, list, i, val) MapleListSelect(kv, list, i)

Parameters

 kv - kernel handle returned by StartMaple n - number of elements in the list list - Maple list object i - index of entry in a list val - value to assign into the list

Description

 • These functions are part of the OpenMaple interface to Microsoft Visual Basic.
 • The MapleListAlloc function creates a new list that can contain n elements.  The list must be filled completely before passing it back to Maple.
 • The MapleListAssign function sets the ith element of the given list to the value val.  Lists can be modified only if they were created by MapleListAlloc and have never entered Maple (for example, as an argument to a function evaluation or returned value).  Lists are static objects; once created, they cannot change.  For information on working with a dynamic object, see ?RTableCreate.
 • The MapleListSelect function retrieves the ith element of the given list.  Indexing in a list starts at 1.
 • The size of a list can be obtained using the MapleNumArgs command.
