Examples

 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 ); Indexable ind; ind = (Indexable)engine.evaluate( "{1,3,7,11}:" ); System.out.println( "Min of set:" + ind.min() ); System.out.println( "Max of set:" + ind.max() ); ind = (Indexable)engine.evaluate( "table([a=1,b=2/3,c=Pi]):" ); System.out.println( "Min of table:" + ind.min() ); System.out.println( "Max of table:" + ind.max() ); } }

Executing this code produces the following output.

 Min of set: 1 Max of set: 11 Min of table: 2/3 Max of table: Pi
