Apropos

Function: apropos (<string>) Searches for Maxima names which have <string> appearing anywhere within them. Thus, apropos (exp) returns a list of all the flags and functions which have exp as part of their names, such as expand, exp, and exponentialize. Thus if you can only remember part of the name of something you can use this command to find the rest of the name. Similarly, you could say apropos (tr_) to find a list of many of the switches relating to the translator, most of which begin with tr_.

value : 3;
equation : a+2 =b;
function(x) := x + 3;
function(3);
function(b);
apropos("reg");

apropos("") returns a list with all Maxima names.

apropos returns the empty list [], if no name is found.

Example:

Show all Maxima symbols wich have "gamma" in the name:

          (%i1) apropos("gamma");
          (%o1) [%gamma, %gammagreek, gamma, gammagreek, gammalim, gamma_expand,
          gamma_imag, gamma_incomplete, gamma_incomplete_generalized,
          gamma_incomplete_regularized, gamma_radius, Gamma, log_gamma, makegamma,
          gamma_incomplete_generalized_regularized]

(%o1)                                true
(%i2)
