Which functionality from the Combinatorica package are you missing? I don't know if you have read the entry Compatibility/tutorial/Combinatorica in the Document Center in Mathematica, but it explains how you can achieve some of the functionality of the Combinatorica package with the new built in symbols. Essentially, you can still load and use the package as before; the message is just a warning that some of the symbols in the loaded package may clash with the built-in symbols. After loading the package, the symbols in the Combinatorica package will shadow the built-in symbols meaning that if you call for example Graph, Mathematica will use the one in the Combinatorica package, instead of the built-in one. Luckily, both symbols exist in their own context, so you can distinguish between them by calling them with their full Context name. For example System`Graph[{1 -> 2}] will call the built in function Graph, and Combinatorica`Graph[{{{1, 2}}}, {{{0, 0}}, {{1, 0}}}] the function Graph defined in the Combinatorica package (provided the package is loaded). So for the second part of your post, you could do something like g = System`Graph[Table[i \[UndirectedEdge] Mod[i + 1, 2], {i, 20}]] Heike. On 31 Jul 2011, at 12:26, a boy wrote: > 1.
