Some time time ago I posted a question without the documentation, there was one response with an answer I wasn't looking for (but thanks anyway). Now I have reproduced the error without crashing mathematica, so here goes again, with documentation. I have the annoying problem, that once in a while when I interrupt a calculation with <alt>+<.> MMA3.0 start splurting out error messages in the messages window: For example I input the following (whre c[i,j] is an array of not so nice functions): In[]: NullSpace[Table[c[i,j][[1]],{i,1,8},{j,1,8}] /.c[1]->.4,c[2]->.3,c[3]->.2, c[4]->-.5] Where I had forgotten the braces about the replacement rules. Hitting "evaluate" I got the first error message: NullSpace::"optrs": "Option specification \!\(\(c[4]\) \\[Rule] \(-\*StyleBox[\"0.5`\", \ Rule[PrintPrecision, 1], Rule[StyleBoxAutoDelete, True]]\)\) in \ \!\(NullSpace[\(\\[LeftSkeleton] 1 \\[RightSkeleton]\)]\) is not a rule for a \ symbol." Realising my error I hit <alt> + <.>, then, in the messages I got loads of messages like (in the messages window): Front End Message An unknown box name (Rational) was sent as the BoxForm for the expression. Check the format rules for the expression. Front End Message An unknown box name (Power) was sent as the BoxForm for the expression. Check the format rules for the expression. Front End Message An unknown box name (c) was sent as the BoxForm for the expression. Check the format rules for the expression. Front End Message An unknown box name (Times) was sent as the BoxForm for the expression. Check the format rules for the expression. Obviously I do not care about this message and just want to correct my typo without having to wait for mathematica to finish its messages. It can take literally hours on a pentium 150 to finish, it can even crash mathematica (linux does not crash :-) Is there a way to turn off the messages? Can I get of this annoying feature by upgrading to 3.01? Happy computing, Nikolaj -- -------------------------------------------------------------- | Ph.D. stud., cand.scient. | | K.
