In Maple, how do I clear all variables and restart without quitting the application?

To clear all variables in Maple and restart without having to reload the application, enter:

  restart;

This will clear all values, unload all packages, and reinitialize Maple. However, this command will not free up memory previously allocated to Maple; consequently, when doing large jobs, the only way to improve speed is to exit and restart Maple.

Note:
When running xmaple, or Maple for Windows or Mac, simply selecting previous commands and deleting them from the screen will not remove their values, as restart does.
