really use Maple plot commands from inside Matlab, it wont make sense)
As for correctness issues, Maple is CAS software, and like all CAS
software has its share of bugs.
There is this web site which attempts to keep track of Maple bugs:
There is a Maple new group also if you need more specific info on
