For examples of EvalH and EvalT (i.e. terse style), look at Terse input file for CLD (call it incld1) , if you type: maple -q < incld1 > ocld1 , you would get Terse output file for CLD

For examples of EvalHpaper and EvalTpaper (i.e. verbose style), look at Verbose input file for CLD (call it incld2) , if you type: maple -q < incld2 > ocld2 , you would get Verbose output file for CLD

Added May 22, 2006: Dr. Feli Galker kindly told me that the previous title ("Liebe Opa ...") should be corrected.
