My goal is to have users question banks in text files, and then read the data (both text and Maple procedures) in, through the readline function. The problem is, when I use that function, they come out as strings. For instance, if the first line of my file default.txt is
then the command readline("default.txt"); will display
I've tried using the convert function, but I can't find a type that will change it to a procedure. convert(aString,symbol) puts it as a symbol, but when I assign a variable to that symbol all it does it spit the symbol back out, it doesn't execute it. And if I use type(aString,procedure), it makes a procedure which displays the string. I need to remove the double quotes somehow and turn what's inside into a full-fledged Maple procedure. Any ideas?
