So if anybody has a > really fast machine, let me know! I wouldn't recommend to use Mathematica for a computationally intensive task. It would be better to replace fitting procedure with an external function, written in FORTRAN or C via MathLink. And no computer is fast enough if task is not well optimized. -----== Posted via Deja News, The Leader in Internet Discussion ==----- http://www.dejanews.com/rg_mkgrp.xp Create Your Own Free Member Forum
