I am a Ph.D. student in Operations Research at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am an avid user of C++, Mathematica, and LaTeX. I benefit a great deal from answers on the Stack Exchange network, and I hope to contribute as much as I can to the growth of this great community.

comment Windows IME Chinese blocking shortcut for ctrl + space
After doing further research, I confirmed that (at least for my windows version) you are correct. I changed the registry key on my work computer and the fixed worked. I am still trying to get it to work on my laptop, which I assume is giving me trouble due to a different version of Windows (7 versus Vista).

comment Converting expressions into functions
All the answers have been very helpful. Most of what has been said, I had read once before, but I was stumped because I was still getting unexpected behavior. It turns out that the problem I had was actually caused by a HoldForm that was buried inside the complicated expression on the right-hand-side of a, from where I misused one of my own functions.

comment Order of operations for the Table function
That's an interesting tactic. Do you think ReleaseHold would work? My Mathematica 8 help tells me that Release was superseded by Evaluate and ReleaseHold.

comment What is the default file path used by the Put function and how do I pre-evaluate an expression to use in Put?
I agree with you that your answer is probably better Mathematica style. It certainly produces a slightly more robust approach for the specific issue I was considering when I wrote the original question. I also think your mention about the built in variables and functions for handling directory names is more robust.

comment Manipulating the axis on a ListLinePlot
In Mathematica 8, ScalingFunctions is not an option for ListLinePlot. Are you using a different version of Mathematica?

Corrected the formatting of the output generated by WriteString for the case of superscripts and subscripts.
