Re: Possible Collect bug


If I understand the recent messages from Howard Fink <fink at acf5.nyu.edu>,
Peter Horan <peter at aragorn.cm.deakin.oz>, and John Mitchell
<mitchell at pico.uchicago.edu>,and am not confused now :-), below is a
simple example demonstrating a problem with the Collect[] function.

	Mathematica (sun3.fpa) 1.2 (November 6, 1989) [With pre-loaded data]

	In[1]:= Collect[(-1)^(-1+2n),x]  (* note no x in first argument *)

	            2 n
	Out[1]= (-1)
