in [mg2234] Deleting more subtle then Clear[ ] ?
asks about selective clearing (see attached messege).
I hope the following example may help.
f[x_,y_] := f[x,y] = x -y
Do[f[x,y], {x,1,2},{y,1,2}]
?f
Global`f
f[1, 1] = 0
f[1, 2] = -1
f[2, 1] = 1
f[2, 2] = 0
f[x_, y_] := f[x, y] = x - y
dv = DownValues[f]
{Literal[f[1, 1]] :> 0, Literal[f[1, 2]] :> -1,
Literal[f[2, 1]] :> 1, Literal[f[2, 2]] :> 0,
Literal[f[x_, y_]] :> (f[x, y] = x - y)
}
Now change DownValues by standard techniques.
For example
DownValues[f] =
Cases[dv,e_/;FreeQ[e, Literal[f[_?NumberQ,_?NumberQ]]]]
{Literal[f[x_, y_]] :> (f[x, y] = x - y)}
?f
Global`f
f[x_, y_] := f[x, y] = x - y

Well,
Let's assume we have a function f[x,y,z] where x and y are
VERY big or
time consuming lists of numbers or functions.
By defining f[x_,y_,z_]:= f[x,y,z] = I make MMA remember
what it did.
How can I now tell it to disremember for all f[x,*,*] when I
specifically want
it to reprocess whatever is dependend on x (i.e. the contents of
the file has
changed but the name is the same) but NOT on y?
Thanks for help
Alfred
