But -- this is a little off-topic now -- what I really miss in the documentation is the handling of the Method option, which a lot of functions do have. For most functions all we know is, that there is a Method option, which defaults to Automatic. Some other have "Possible setting for Method include..." Sometimes, if you are lucky setting Method->"blabla" gives you a message which reports the allowed method settings, but in most cases there is no message and Method->"blabla" silently accepted. I would *really* like the documentation to list all possible settings of Method an to explain what they are doing, as in the documentation of NDSolve. -- _________________________________________________________________ Peter Breitfeld, Bad Saulgau, Germany -- http://www.pBreitfeld.de
