Anyone have any idea how to stop Plot putting a (near) vertical line at x=2 in the command: Plot[1/(1-x),{x,0,2}] ie. detect that the function 1/(1-x) has a singularity at x=2 and do something about it. This is analagous to numerically integrating over a (integrable) singularity, where the following remedy works: NIntegrate[1/Abs[Sqrt[x-1]]^2,{x,0,1,2}] But in this case it doesn't work. Decreasing MaxBend works a bit but the line is still there. (I am really interested in drawing paths in the plane using ParmetricPlot) Any ideas or comments -- Patrick McLean No news is good news...
