I have a string, call it "m" and I want to write output that reads m=i where i is a variable. if, say i=5 I want to write m=5, but if I try to do this by writing "m="i Mathematica outputs 5a= . How can I get around this. A more important question is does Mathematica 4.0 for macs have a bug in it's help browser? When I use the back button it doesn't go to the last page but instead to a page about something related with a link to where I was. I'm I mis using it or is it just broken. Thanks for any help, I know some of my questions are probably seem to basic for this site, but there things that have been bugging me for a long time while using Mathematica and never figured out. -- Naum Phleger Gwinn Group: Naum's House: University of California 6652 Sueno Apt #2 Santa Barbara, CA 93106 Isla Vista, CA 93117 Phone: (805) 893-8656 Phone: (805) 685-2525 naum at condor.physics.ucsb.edu
