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. David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Peter Jay Salzman [mailto:p at dirac.org] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net 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
