Paul,

thanks for your comprehensive answers.

Unfortunately, I'm having difficulties finding the article you mentioned 
(The Mathematica Journal 8(3) page 402) on the internet. As I'm 
subscriber I can find vol. 8, 3 but I'm stuck with "page 402".
Could you please tell me title and author of the article?

Thanks and regards,
Wolfgang
