Example of table?
Sorry if I'm being dense but I'm trying to get an example of the table function. All the references I can find online just parrot the user guide. If I could understand the guide's definition, I wouldn't need to look it up on Google! What's the SeqEqual in the manual's definition of table? I can't find any other reference to it in the manual. Can someone give me a simple example of the use of table? TIA!

This is a CAS function. See this definition of table in xcas: 2.40 Table with string as index : table.

Note that on the Prime you cannot use the variable T as in the example as T is a predefined real variable. You can replace it with Tab for example.

Now THAT can be a useful function! Thanks for the info. It's simple once I can see an example.

Just be aware that it may not function correctly, hasn't been tested at all, and I believe Bernard had recommended it be removed at one point (and may be so at some point).

I would NOT recommend using it at all.

It figures! Just when I got to dreaming of all the great uses I'd have for the table command, you have to wake me up to a harsh reality. Instead of removing it, why not make it work correctly? Smile
