Still the data generated by the call of the function 'get_alg' may be interpreted in several different ways, corresponding to different classes of algebras. Thus it is necessary to convert the this output into the standard data format for the corresponding class. In the case of our example, the algebra 'a' is to be considered as a bound poset algebra, the function 'bp_alg' doing the conversion, as displayed below.
It will not escape notice however that the standard data format for bound poset algebras, though it is better adapted to the data handling of the Maple system, is not quite as readable as is the original graphical input. Still, an algebra may also be typed right into Maple's user interface, using this standard format.
