Dear Marcus, dear Gap Forum,

It happens that very recently another user has translated the Maple
code of the CHEVIE package to work with Maple 8.

After some tests I have put that version on the web page:

In fact that version seems to work with Maple 7, 8 or 9. Unfortunately
it doesn't work with Maple 6 for reasons I don't understand.

I hope you find a way to use either the Maple V.3 or the new variant of
the package.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you need further help concerning generic
character tables. (But probably not via the GAP Forum, since this part
of the CHEVIE package is not GAP related.)

With best regards,

  Frank Lübeck
