I bought a book where the exercises are given in Maple worksheet format (.mw). Is there an open-source software in Linux able to interpret or to convert this specific file format ?

    $\begingroup$ I think that this question is on-topic here. I don't know any open-source that can do that. But you can download (for free) Maple Player that can be used for view and interact with Maple documents. What is the book about? $\endgroup$ – nicoguaro Sep 24 '14 at 17:29

  • $\begingroup$ @nicoguaro. Thank you, at least I can now see the code and manually translate it to something else. The book is "Natural resource and environmental economics" of R. Perman et oth. $\endgroup$ – Antonello Sep 25 '14 at 7:05
  • $\begingroup$ @k20: thank you, I has been able to use the first tool there (mw2txt.py) to at least convert it to a txt file (as the Maple Player allows me to just print as image, I can't select text from there).. it's a starting point.. $\endgroup$ – Antonello Sep 25 '14 at 7:36

Maple has a built-in function for converting the code into other languages. It is called Code Generation.

You can reach a person who has Maple and ask her/him to do it for you.


I don't think such luxury is available. As a possible solution to your problem, contact some one with maple license, so that he can copy the contents of .mw file to some text editor and mail back to you.
