RE: A simple bug..



If you want to replace h PERMANENTLY use h=6 See also help for Set,
Replace and ReplaceAll.

Hope this helps,

I seem to have come across this  simple and reproducible bug :

The error is in the last line of this post (the others are simply
reproducing my previous steps) where "h" is not being replaced.....
