Dear Jean-Marc, thanks for your quick help.
By the way i am not in complete agreement with you for some reason.
1)The text i found on internet that I called "article" is "Reti
neurali: ipotetiche forme di vita artificiale o realistici calcolatori
alternativi?", you can find on internet the manuscript. I did not say
exactly what it was because is in Italian and since I guess that not
everybody understands Italian here i did not mention it.
2)I found the package from internet before I found the book"
Simulating neural network with mathematica" that i have now.
3) I guess that this is a forum, free, for free development of the
culture. and I think that if i gave you a link to the code and there
was also one pdf. of one book this is not a big deal. You have never
downloaded one mp3 from internet for free?
4)Since i work in university my software and books are all genuine of
course, and the law in this country states that if you have a book you
can make a copy for yourself.(because for example you can write on it,
the same is with pdf files)
5)Since you found a copy (not illegal, i just made an error to place
it in the public folder, now is not public anymore) of a book on an
other software; you could not help me? what is that, I should use only
mathematica and not an other software?
6)if you are not able or you cant answer to questions for any reason,
why you argue on what i should or not should do, and just dont write
anything?This would avoid me to waste time.
