I have noted that in V. 2.2.3 for the PC Mathematica will not plot with the following command Plot [ Table [ Sin[n x] , {n ,1 , 5} ] , {x,0,Pi} ] although I am quite sure that it used to do so on the Macintosh and NeXT. However, I must use Evaluate to get Mathematica to evaluate the above command. Plot [ Evaluate[ Table [ Sin[n x] , {n ,1 , 5} ] ] , {x,0,Pi} ]
