    I am manually re-creating the TS diagram for phase plot of fluid=air for use in a report as a pretty plot.   The TemperatureEntropyChart function is colored in grayscale.  I really need to change to colorized for additional data being added.

   The code to generate the various isobars color gradient is shadebetween two curves.   

    Using the code method to plot leaves white gaps in the discontinutiy of the plot curves returned from the Property function at the liquid and vapor lines.   I have manually connected the horizontal "under the dome" in a matrix of X,Y for each of two isobar curves.

   However, the shadebetween doesn't seem to like the two X,Y matrices for the curves as inputs to shadebetween.

    So,...   Q:   1.)  Can the color be changed using the TempertureEntropyChart function,..or
                      2.)  Can matrices of unequal X,Y values (scatterplot type data sets) be used for the curves in shadebetween command?  The help infers the Y (v, of (u,v))  values need to match.

Anybody find Import CAD closes MapleSim 2022.2 when just opening file chooser when attempting to import CAD file?



   A question on programming Procedures (proc).

   What is the best, or most common method, to invoke packages within proc or at the worksheet level?

   I have always been confused about Proc scope for packages.   I use Scientific Constants a lot.   It and several other "with(package)" are part my main loaded pakages right after restart command.   LinearAlgebra is another common used package.

   It has been a question for me of whether to implement a "with()" statement inside of the proc to bound the scope or ensure it is seen/available by the procedure for the available commands inside the packages.  

  All thoughts appreciated.



    I am regularly using tabled data for things like material properties, or other tabled look-up data from induustry or custom datasets.

    I have not used workbooks within Maple and yet see that exel files or other data sets can be "connected(?)" in the workbook tree.  Is this helpful?

    What is the best practice view of connecting to DB data and looking up variables that repeat project to project or worksheet to worksheet - without pulling into memory the full datasets for each ref call?

All thoughts appreciated.   

P.S., Tables vs. dataframes are a slight confusing matter also.  The access to the cell info seems different based on dataframe/table/matrix type.  I have no problems with matrix element access.


Does anyone use the /= assignment operator?

I am trying to do a

while error  > error_tol do

sequence of ops,

# update error from last loop
# simple example of assignment test 

error /= 2;    #to simulate decreasing error each loop.  Real equation on RHS is error(i) = error(i-1) + comparison of last iterates.

# Real operator assignment I'd like to use is error += comparison

end do;

the divide / keeps applying as the single divide and a long line under the variable before I can type =.   This happens in both 1-D and 2-D.   The "Operator Assignments" help page doesn't have a lot of help on syntax problems using these.
