On my Windows XP system, for Mathematica 6, the plain ASCII text file called Benchmarking.m located in the directory C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\6.0\AddOns\Packages\Benchmarking contains the code for the problems under the section header "Benchmark Tests" (roughly the last third of the file). Look for the function called *benchmarktests*. for Mathematica 5.2, the plain ASCII text file called Benchmark.m located in the directory C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\5.2\AddOns\StandardPackages\Utilities contains the code for the problems under the section header "Benchmark Tests" (roughly the last third of the file). Look for the function called *benchmarktests*. Regards, -- Jean-Marc
