If you are interested in plotting, run Maple under X-windows or
on a 386, etc. Useful plot commands are: `plot, plot3d, tubeplot,
spacecurve`

The syntax of `plot` and `plot3d` is hopefully obvious from the
examples below. They can both take a set of functions as their first
argument.

The advanced plot-functions have to be loaded with the command > with(plots);

Some simple examples:

> plot(sin(x), x=0..2*Pi); > plot({sin(x), x-x^3/6}, 0..2); > f:=exp(-x^2-2*y^2)-sin(7*x)/8: > plot3d(f,x=-1..1,y=-1..1);
