Re: Animation crash


This is an example of an animation that crashes my mathematica;
it might be that my problem is related to the fact that I am working
only a terminal sharing the server with 40 other people.
This morning when server load was really low, mathematica
did hang up, but I could still open a shell to kill it.

The delete key did not work.

Bye
Ben

\[Gamma]={r Cos[s/Sqrt[r^2+h^2]-\[Omega] t],
    r Sin[s/Sqrt[r^2+h^2]-\[Omega] t],
h s/Sqrt[r^2+h^2]- vnet t }
