I went to a particular website where I downloaded Maple programs in .txt files.
If I open the files and cut and paste the .txt into a Maple worksheet,
a > is inserted at the start of every line. It would take forever to delete each of these
>'s from the start of each line in a program with 500 lines. Someone suggested that I put the command
into my Maple worksheet. But, this - and many variations, with and without single quotes, file extensions, etc. - does not work.
By the way: I never expect more than 1% of suggestions and help with computer programming ever to work. That's about the average. That's just the way computers and their software are made.
