Wow! oshaughn - a relatively Mathfroup newcomer (just 5 posts so far) - cries "Bug!" and he gets 14 (self?) reassuring replies within a few hours, mostly from Mathgroup oldtimers. Looks like everybody is "on hedge" here :-) Relax, Mathematica 7.x certainly has bugs, but they probably are not so obvious anymore and probably only concern the newest functions. (my grand father was a great lawyer and taught me that if you sprinkle your sentences with "probably", you never get in trouble. Well...you - probably - never get into trouble :-) I certainly share Murray's wise opinions expressed above. Perhaps I would have expressed them more, shall we say, colorfully :-) Your apologies are very appreciated. oshaughn: if you think that "form" matters (differentiable or otherwise) and you enjoy admiring event horizons from a safe Mathematica shore, I would suggest you look into David Park's Tensorial package at http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/TensorialPage.html Put your XX century antique code to a deserved rest and enjoy: early XXI century Mathematica code V.6 compatible 2D output and.... first class support directly from David. (OOPS...just slipped into my "marketing mode" again. I must have been exposed to too much WRI product descriptions lately :-) ) Anyway, check it out. It's well worth its reasonable price.
