Pattern matches only when named

  • To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net
  • Subject: [mg43873] Pattern matches only when named

Just a curiosity:

In[1]:=   f + g /. u_ + _ -> h
Out[1]:=  h

but

In[2]:=   f + g /. _ + _ -> h
Out[2]:=  f + g

Why does the pattern match only when one of the Blanks has a name?


Thanks,
Ken
