Oh there coming thick and fast....
I tried one of the silly examples:
<integral> 0 to X exp(X) dX
(sorry not sure of the ascii convention to get this right).
Anyway, note I am evaluating exp(X) and not exp(-X).
I would expect this to be infinite?
Anyway after 30 secs, maybe 1 minute it was still calculating away. Maybe it is fine to do this in one or other of the numeric modes .. not sure.
So I aborted the operation with ON/CANCEL.
It popped up a note saying the operation was interrupted.
The bug is it left this on the stack:
I think any command leaving an External on the stack can be considered a bug? Not sure what the 0.728780437708 corresponds to (the right answer?)
more later when the next baby appears.
