I'm connecting over ssh to a machine running Maple. Is there a way to run a script, let's say derp.mpl, such that after executing the script Maple is still running?

Something perhaps analogous to running python like this:

python -i

I realize that this is actually a bad question (about Maple rather than math) however It still seems to be the most appropriate stack exchange site for this. Sorry in advance! – C-o-r-E Apr 26 '12 at 20:49 – user2468 Apr 26 '12 at 23:16

The -F option allows the session to stay open (not quit) after completing whatever computation was started by the script.

maple -F derp.mpl
