The import Library

The import library provides functions for importing external data into MuPAD®.

The package functions are called using the package name import and the name of the function. E.g., use

import::readdata("datafile")

for reading external data from the file ‘datafile.' This mechanism avoids naming conflicts with other library functions. If this is found to be inconvenient, then the routines of the import package may be exported via use. E.g., after calling

use(import, readdata)

the function import::readdata may be called directly:

readdata("datafile")

All routines of the import package are exported simultaneously by

use(import)

The functions available in the import library can be listed with:

info(import)
