Thanks for your quick replies. I should have mentioned that I had 
Mathematica 4.0. So, Sow and Reap are not defined within this version.
Furthermore,  I can't use the option "'EvaluationMonitor" inside

I realized that Peter wrote a package ("GoodReapSow.nb"") which
implements Reap and Sow commands  in Mathematica 4. I can use that
package even though it is not efficient according to Peter. However, I
still need to figure out how to define an option like 
"EvaluationMonitor" for NIntegrate. Does anybody have an idea?

Thanks a lot,


 PS: Peter I tried to run your "NUnitSphere" notebook but it seems
that it is incompatible with mathematica 4.
