Re: Re: What is the compatibility guide?
One can also type "compatibility guide" in the search field of the locally installed Mathematica 6 Documentation Center. Unfortunately -- and this is really annoying -- one gets quite different results from the on-line search listing for the same thing. In Mathematica 6 itself, there are 18 results: Package Bulletproofing System Information Package Development : Summary of New Features in 6.0 : mprep : MLYieldParameters From the on-line search, one gets a more useful list of 31 results: Standard Package Compatibility Guide Package Bulletproofing Algegra` Upgrading Information Calculus` Upgrading Information : Utilities` Upgrading Information System Information Package Development : Summary of New Features in 6.0 : MLYield Parameters The most annoying thing is that the page "Standard Package Compatibility Guide" does not seem to exist in the local Documentation Center. While Selwyn Hollis' HelpHelper palette compensates for that, surely Wolfram Research should add that page to the supplied documentation (and ensure that the indexing engine finds it). dimitris wrote: > Hello. > > I don't have Mathematica 6, > but the online documentation > which I frequently consult seems > to offer complete information. > > Go to > > http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/guide/Mathematica.html > > Type "compatibility guide" in the search field > and the result will be a list of some important > have changed in Mathematica 6 regarding packages > of earlier versions. > > For example try > > http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/Compatibility/guide/NumericalMath/NumericalMathUpgradingInformation.html > > For IntervalRoots package there is no information but since as I have > understood the > online help browser frequntly is updated soon it will have been added > some information. > > Dimitris > > -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
