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?

    seems to be a java problem

    same game like always -- upgrade and your problems would be solved -- nice try to get even more money :-((

    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.
