```There is something about using patterns that I don't understand, and
am hoping someone can shed some light.  Here is an example of my
problem.  Say I have a function f[x] and I take the derivative of it.
I can then integrate it and get f[x] back:

In:= expr = D[ f[x], x ]
Out= f=E2=80=B2[x]

In:= Integrate[expr, x]
Out= f[x]

If I use a ReplaceAll and a pattern to do the integration, the
Integrate function treats f'[x] as a constant and returns the wrong

In:= expr /. func_ ->  Integrate[func,x]
Out= x f=E2=80=B2[x]

Any thoughts as to what I am doing wrong?

Jack
