Hi,

 

Yes. Sorry I already knew that part. Didn't think to mention it.

Thanks for looking at the question.

 

Regards.

I opened a new document and now it seems to work all the time.

Don't know what happened...

Hi,

 

I should have mentioned that I know

is imaginary.

@Alejandro Jakubi I am wondering why you think having sqrt as a module is better? My understanding of a module is that it is a collection of bindings with its own environment. It is not apparent to me why making a module with sqrt is better than binding it into the global environment?

Hi,

 

Thanks for the response. The question I was posing was how to format when using the Export command. If you look in your example, the numbers are formatted as .xxxxxxxxxxExx. I was looking for x.xxExx (or more generically, how to control the formatting).

This is exactly what I was looking for.

With regard to other comments. This is not cheating at all (I agree). It's just using an identity.

Hi,

 

Works like a charm. It had not occurred to me to take the values in the sets as indices into a vector.

I guess I was working from a more general mental model that the elements of the set might not be numbers.

Any clever idea on how that might work? I could probably brute force it by mapping the elements of the sets to numbers, but that seems a bit inelegant.

I had been plowing through the groups package and really hadn't seen a solution. I was a little surprised there was nothing to implement a group action directly.

 

Thanks for the help.

Thanks. This does the trick. At first I did a dumb-dumb and used convert(-i,name) just like you did. Of course, that was not my index variable!
