If you have version 6 then it should run .nbp files just fine. Earlier versions will not run them (they require functionality not present prior to version 6). > I'm asking only because the demonstrations thing allowed me > to download a source code but it is given only in .nbp, not > ..nb. I went back and looked and saw no option to get a .nb. If you go below the demonstration caption in the web browser, you should see the author attribution e.g. Contributed by:... in a box. Below that box there is a link "DOWNLOAD SOURCE CODE". Hit that link to get the .nb file. > Apparently I have the option to get player, install it, etc > just to see this code. Is this my only option (if you know)? If you do not have version 6 then this is your only option for playing a demonstration. It will not show code in a .nbp file because none is present. It should, however, allow you to see code in the .nb file accessed as indicated above. > Thanks again for your attention to this, Rob Daniel Lichtblau Wolfram Research > Jeff Bryant wrote: >> If you are referring to the Demonstration itself, there is something >> in it in the form of a working Manipulate output, but I assume you mean >> there is not source code?
