1) Go to Help, Documentation Center, Core Language, Functional Programming and try to become familiar with these commands. If you're used to procedural programming, a few of the functional commands may take a while to get used to but just keep 'pushing the envelope'. 2) Localize variable values. Don't write code like: x = 3; f = x^2 + Sqrt[y] Plot[f, {y, 0, 5}] Instead write: f[x_, y_] := x^2 + Sqrt[y] Plot[f[3, y], {y, 0, 5}] David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: meitnik [mailto:meitnik at gmail.com] Hi, As a new user of Mathematica, where would I find coding style info towards good coding. I don't want to get into bad habits of coding. Any docs anyone can recommend? Thanks
