See those two pins? Well today I'm going to... stick them in you.


Ok, let me come clean: Mr.Wizard is actually an alias of mine... I'm glad I can finally confess. ― Sjoerd C. de Vries

No, I'm Spatac... I mean, Mr.Wizard! ― R.M

I'm Mr.W, and so's my wife! ― acl


@Spartacus, it was not fixable. ― rcollyer

check again; I just fixed it. :-p ― Spartacus

It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

I could make a web based game, and feed all my graphs to the visitors.
SE is a big game, isn't it? :D – Szabolcs

... but I am working with a large body of code written by an incompetent fool (i.e. myself, several years ago...) – Simon Woods


I was tempted to edit your title: "Do rules rule?" But my nose is still bleeding as a result of a limerick. – belisarius


No, but they nowadays let me turn off the lights at night; 24 hours of fluorescence was really starting to make me feral. Brett says I should also mention the tip jar... – Daniel Lichtblau Mar 13 '12 at 20:48

comment Command to take the first elements of a list that match a pattern
This is clean and concise but be aware that it is quite inefficient on long lists as it splits the entire list even if you are only interested in a few elements at the beginning.

I have put this question on hold pending clarification. Is this in fact about Wolfram Mathematica? Have you reviewed the earlier question and its answers? Are they inapplicable to your problem or did they otherwise fail?

Please do not merely paste a wall of code; explain what you are doing and what the problem is.

comment Defining a custom Plus for a specific class of arguments
Given that the listability of Plus is a fundamental property in Mathematica this modification is highly inadvisable, nevertheless I agree with your analysis so +1.

This quesiton appears to be a duplicate so I have marked it as such. Please read the question linked at the top of your post as well as its answers. If you feel that your question is not the same please edit it to clarify in what way it is different. If the question is the same but the answers are unsatisfactory please explain that as well.

On reflection I think that this question, if no additional detail is added, can be closed as a duplicate of (50381) since all methods below are given there and with greater detail.
