Matlab, maple notation problem

  1. Feb 3, 2005 #1

    i have a very special probelm
    with matlab R13 and maple9.5 on a linux debian box

    i could not type the '^' symbol within those progs (just in there),
    which is of course very nasty -- in maple '**' does the same as the hat symbol but what todo in matlab ?

    does anybody had the same problem and knows a solution for it ?

    thx in advance

    PS: please apologize my rude english (non-native)

    Try this: '\^'

    I got a warning telling me that ^ was the character used for tex, so I just added the backslash and it worked fine.

    I don't have that problem in Maple but in Matlab, typing a single '^' does not work either. However typeing two produces one. Have you tried that?

    Yeah, I'm using R14 on linux, but i'm also using the blackdown java vm, not sun's. Maybe thats why I don't have this issue.
