Re: Polar Plots don't seem to work


Pete,

The In[1] gives away the whole story. You have to first load the package
before using PolarPlot.

Needs["Graphics`Graphics`"]

PolarPlot[Sin[t], {t, 0, 2*Pi}]

now works.

I'm on Linux using Mathematica 5.0.1.0.

When I try to make a polar plot, no graphics is shown.  This is what I see:


	In[1]:= PolarPlot[Sin[t], {t, 0, 2*\[Pi]}]

	Out[1]= PolarPlot[Sin[t],{t,0,2 \[Pi]}]


Mathematica simply repeats what I told it without displaying a graphic.
Even the
polar plot in the help browser topic doesn't work.

Any ideas why Mathematica isn't showing me polar plots?  Do I need to
explicitly
display something?

Thanks,
Pete
