Question: Attempted Compile locks up MAPLE11

In order to further my understanding of the subtleties of the MAPLE programming language, I attempted to fool around with the code of one the the MAPLE procedures, specifically BesselJ(nu,x). I set interface(verboseproc=2) then I executed the command eval(BesselJ) and got, as output, the code of the procedure. I then copied the code to an input prompt and then in front of the code I put BesselJ:= When I attempted to compile this code I locked up MAPLE. I have an idea of what was happening. The code contains the statement BesselJ(nu,x):=0 and when MAPLE encounters this kind of construction it wants to know whether this should be interpreted as function construction of remember table assignment. Unfortunately, there was so much code being compiled that the box that appeared in the middle of the screen extended from the top to the bottom of the screen. The check boxes were out in space some where below the screen so there was no way I could get to them. So MAPLE kept waiting for an input that I had no way of giving it, and my only remedy was ctrl-alt-delete and then telling WINDOWS to shut down MAPLE. This happened on 2 different computers. I wonder if there is anyone out there who could help me with a workaround for this. -Thanks View 2292_Compile on MapleNet or Download 2292_Compile
