Re: version differences?
I found that I had problems using other notebooks at this website dealing with Experimental Data Analysis add-on: http://documents.wolfram.com/applications/eda/FittingDataToNonlinearModels.html In this notebook example, the command for fitting nonlinear data is written as FindFit[...]. Well, in the help menu for Matematica 5.0 the command is written as EDAFindFit[...] everything else is the same in the notebooks with just that exception. I spent and hour on the phone to Wolfram asssuming my installation of the add on package wasn't working and it wasn't until I copied and pasted from the help browser and it worked did I realize that the online help had that(subtle) difference. Needless to say I no longer look online for examples. The guy I was speaking with from Wolfram seemed surprised by the difference. The version of Mathematica he was using didn't have any problems with the online example (at least that's what he told me). I can't remember what version he had. mary beth Quoting sean kim <sean_incali at yahoo.com>: > hello group. > > the webpage > > http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Articles/1658/ > > has a notebook named checking.nb.
