Why is a more direct approach of defining a table now working and giving an indexed type, while the indirect approach is giving a table?

atable := table()

table( [ ] )``

(1)

a := table()

table( [ ] )

(2)

atable["a"] := a

a

(3)

atable["b"] := table()

table( [ ] )

(4)

whattype(atable["a"])

table

(5)

whattype(atable["b"])

indexed

(6)

NULL

There are a couple of warnings in the Maple Code Editor that are unneccessary. Those are valid parameters of in Maple functions.

Would it be possible to have those removed in future editions?

I haven't managed to round values with units, and get the trailing zeroes cut away, so I'd like to use the MapleTA:-Builtin:-numfmt function to do the job.

The problem is, that this function doesn't accept values with units.

I have managed to write a rounding function to do the rounding, but the problem here is that it will write the values with trailing zeroes, which isn't what I want.

Any ideas how to fix that?

It would be nice to have the file name in addition to the name of the code attachment on the top.

Is there a way to importing cell values as text, and not numbers, when the cell is formatted as a text?

As far as I can see, a cell with the value "1" is always import as "1.0" in ExcelTools, regardless if the cell is formatted as text or something else in Excel.

Writing '1 in the Excel cell however leads to a text import in Maple, and will give "1", not "1.0".

There is one more thing that is strange in Excel. Even if the cell is formatted as a text, or the cell content is with a ' before the number, Excel will allow a calculation with that value. Text value 4 will give 5, if added 1.
