Parameters in Maxima
Posted:
Mar 14, 2012 2:57 AM


How does Maxima manage parameters tranmited "by reference" in order to be modified? E.g. in Maple the following functions f and g can be used to increase by 1 their parameters:
> f:=proc(x) x:=eval(x)+1 end: > g:=proc(x::evaln) x:=eval(x)+1 end: > x:=10; y:=20: x := 10 > f('x'): g(y): > x,y;
11, 21
Thank you.
