```To whom it may concern

I need a package to solve two point boundary value problems.
A while ago I found the package Chasing.m on mathsource and liked what I
saw. Simple to use in simple situations. Unfortunately I came across a
false solution for a very simple problem.
I suspect numerical problems as the reason for the incorrect answer,
as the RHS of the boundary value problem is variing rapidly.

With best regards

Andreas Stahel

here is the code leading to a false result.
=========================================================

Clear[f,L,u,un]
f[x_] = Exp[-((x-1.5)/0.3)^2];
L=3;
un[x_] =u[x]/.
Chasing[{D[u[x],{x,4}]==f[x],
u[0]==0,u'[0]==0,u[L]==0,u'[L]==0},u[x],{x,0,L}];
Plot[{f[x],un[x]},{x,0,L},PlotRange ->All];
un'[0]
