While working on a problem in Mathematica 4.02, I happened to use a function StringQ. It just seemed like a logically named Mathematica function, and it followed the usual naming convention. I was surprised to learn, however, that this function is referenced no where in the Mathematica documentation. What is even more surprising is that it seems to have existed since at least version 2.2 (although I did see it referenced in Blachmann's "Mathematica Quick Reference version 2")! Is this an oversight on the part of WRI? Perhaps it was mistakenly left out of the docs in earlier versions. I can't imagine this being one of those "undocumented functions" wwhich are subject to change/removal from the language. J. Leko Please e-mail replies to leko*j at cspar.uah.edu and remove the *
