It's a standard InterpolatingFunction object. I don't know what you mean. The function is made by (1) using FunctionInterpolation on a very complicated, slow-to-evaluate expression to create an object f1; (2) wrapping it with If[#1<... || #1> ..., 0, fn]; and then (3) using 'Save'. That'sit. The original function, before saving, does evaluate fine: I've used it to create other data products (e.g., with NIntegrate). Just hangs when restoring it. Also, I recently discovered that the function as above works fine if you manually change only a few of the very small numbers (10^(-316) !) to 0. And, going back to the original code, adding 'Chop' before I do the FunctionInterpolation yields an object that saves and restores without trouble. I therefore *strongly suspect* this is an issue pertaining to the precision with which the object was saved.
