DongGook,

Read the rest of the Help for Not, at least on Version 5...

If you are using Mathematica with a text-based front end, then you cannot
use the notation !expr for Not[expr] if it appears at the very beginning of
a line. In this case, !expr is interpreted as a shell escape.

(Certainly a strange 'feature'!)

Hi,

Could you explain a mysterious behaviour of "! operator" as shown below?


In[43]:=
MemberQ[{1,2,3},3]

Out[43]=
True

In[47]:=
!MemberQ[{1,2,3},3]
(*  Here Mathematica does not give any response!  *)

In[48]:=
Not@MemberQ[{1,2,3},3]

Out[48]=
False


Considering the description from Mathematica help:
	"!expr is the logical NOT function. It gives False if expr is True,
and True if it is False."
This behaviour seems quite suspicious?
