Maple is launched by typing `maple`, or `xmaple`.
Of these, the second has a better graphic interface, whereas `maple`
must be launched in a terminal window, and uses only the standard tty display.
You may also have
an entry for Maple on your root menu.

Also, check out the excellent documentation for Maple, Matlab, etc. at the University of Indiana, by Dave Hart.

Further topics planned for this page are:

- Plotting functions and solving inequalities
- Defining and using simple functions
- Writing longer functions
- Operators on functions
- Programming in Maple

Keith Orpen, who is still writing this, would like to hear your comments and suggestions.
