Hi All,

I do not own a copy of Mathematica 8, but was reviewing the features and the
feature for creating .exe files was interesting.

I am not sure of anyone has tried such things on the group, but was
hoping I could get some insight.

Lets say that I write a program that uses Prime[n].

I create an exe from it.

Will the exe actaually allow infinite precision to the precision that
Mathematica allows for that command?

Another example, lets say that I allow a user to enter the number of
dogits for something like - N[Pi, digits as a program.

Will Mathematica actually allow for use of its precision engine in this case
in the exe file it creates?

If not, what will it do? Also, does it allow an option for such
control or does it just default to the processor detected for the
local machine created on it?

Lastly, as a more general question, are all of Mathematica's thousands of
built in commands allowed for creating an exe as part of a user

Thanks for any insights.
