Just follow the French and use a different word for everything!

<< Graphics`MultipleListPlot`
<< DiscreteMath`Combinatorica`

Star[n] constructs a star on n vertices, which is a tree with one vertex of
degree n-1.


To use a Star from MultipleListPlot define...

mlpStar = Graphics`MultipleListPlot`Star;

Star is a kind of PlotSymbol for use with MultipleListPlot. It represents a
five-pointed star.

Hi group,

the two standard packages Graphics`MultipleListPlot` and
DiscreteMath`Combinatorica` are not compatible to each other.

What can I do about it?




From In[2]:=
Star::shdw: Symbol Star appears in multiple contexts
{DiscreteMath`Combinatorica`, Graphics`MultipleListPlot`};
definitions in context DiscreteMath`Combinatorica` may shadow or be
shadowed by other definitions.

Boy, those French: They have a different word for everything!
