I happened to notice a line in the documentation for Integrate. The book says that "Multiple Integrals use a variation of standard iterator notation. The first variable given corresponds to the outermost integral and is done last." Can I get some confirmation? I am running v4.0.1 under Linux, and *SEEM* to have determined that the manual is incorrect and that it does in fact do the innermost variable with the innermost integral. However, I got my head turned around pretty well, so may have not got this correct. In indefinite integrals, it doesn't matter most times, but for definite multiple integrals, either the manual is wrong, or I am making exactly the same mistake as M! Thanks very much, Phil Mendelsohn -- if ($income > $expenses OR $time != $money ) set hell_frozen=true; asif
