Examples

import java.math.BigDecimal;

import com.maplesoft.openmaple.*;

import com.maplesoft.externalcall.MapleException;

class Example

{

    public static void main( String notused[] ) throws MapleException

    {

        String[] mapleArgs = { "java" };

        Engine engine = new Engine( mapleArgs, new EngineCallBacksDefault(), null, null );

        Numeric n = (Numeric)engine.evaluate( "evalf[60](Pi):" );

        System.out.println( n );

        BigDecimal bd = n.toBigDecimal();

        System.out.println( bd );

    }
