Here's an example: myabs[x_ /; x<0] := -x myabs[x_ /; x>=0] := x This trivially generalizes to more complex functions -- just specify the valid domain using the /; conditional operator. However, suppose one has a spline fit on, say 100 or 1000 subdomains. How can I avoid typing 100 or 1000 separate function definitions? -- Bill Campbell Correlation is not cause.
