I tried to enter a piecewise function into the limit function but it returns:
Error: Bad Argument Value is it possible to work around this? Michael C My ebook

Possibly . . . give an example, that would help.

Sure:
limit(PIECEWISE(x<1,1,x>1,0),x,1) However I entered it in using the templates. Thank you Michael C My ebook

Doesn't work for me, either.
However, if you put in a default condition at the end, like piecewise(x<1,1,x>1,0,9) all limits get computed from the left limit x >1^1 returns 1 from the right limit x >1^1 returns 0 from both sides limit x > 1^0 returns "unidirectional limits are distincts [sic]".
