Thank you. StringReplace[CForm[ yourexpression ],"Power"->"Math.pow"] should do what you want. If your expression is huge and the above command is slow you can use any other system that can do efficient string replacements (e.g. perl, sed,...) for the task... An alternative would be to define your own Output Format for Power, but that would probably get more complicated. Hope that helps. Albert
