Hello, In the C programming language I can operate directly over the characters of a string, like: int main() { char message[16] = "Hello!"; message[n]='a'; /* ... other code ... */ return(0); } This mean: Change the (n+1)th character (in C, array starts at 0) to the specified character. Q: How can I obtain similar effect in Mathematica? Thanks! -- Thanks/obrigado, Renan "Wishmaster" Birck - Canoas, Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil MSN: wizard_of_yendor at hotmail.com Orkut: http://www.orkut.com/Profile.aspx?uid=2202360379963855296
