Grischa,
The following will do it (assume that your list of y values is called ylist)
ylist = {-3,-1,0,3,5,9}
Plot[Evaluate[f[x,ylist]],{x,-3,3}]
regards... RF

Dear group
I have a two parameter function, e.g.
In[1]:= f[x_,y_]:=x+y
Now I would like to plot f[x,y1],f[x,y2],... within the same chart.
Usually you would try something like this:
In[2]:= Plot[{f[x,1],f[x,2],f[x,3]},{x,-3,3}]
Since my list of y's is pretty long I tried this:
In[3]:= ylist={1,2,3};
Plot[Map[f[x,#1]&,ylist],{x,-3,3}]
but Mathematica complains
Plot::"plnr": (f[x, #1]&)/@ylist is not a machine-size real number
at x=-2.9999997
On the other hand we have
In[4]:= Map[f[x,#1]&,ylist]
Out[4]= {1 + x, 2 + x, 3 + x}
and
In[5]:= Plot[{1 + x, 2 + x, 3 + x},{x,-3,3}]
of course works as expected.
Where is my mistake?
