-- Option variable: packagefile Default value:
Package designers who use
translate to create packages (files) for others to use may want to set
packagefile: true to prevent information from being added to Maximas information-lists (e.g.
functions) except where necessary when the file is loaded in. In this way, the contents of the package will not get in the users way when he adds his own data. Note that this will not solve the problem of possible name conflicts. Also note that the flag simply affects what is output to the package file. Setting the flag to
true is also useful for creating Maxima init files.
