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 program? Thanks for any insights. ~A
