could you give an example of the output of Solve and these "ghost"-functions?

comment Creating legends for plots with multiple lines?
Playing around with ImagePadding helped, at least for lines without markes.

comment Creating legends for plots with multiple lines?
@Jens Thank you for this great piece of code. However, I copied your sample and on my machine the lines of the legend are shifted downwards. Do you have any idea why this might happen? Here is the png (that's how it looks inside Mathematica 8) and the pdf.

comment Performance of a Do-Loop of variable length
without further reading into your problem as i can't test anything right now anyway, maybe you can adjust your problem to use NestWhile or NestWhileList. i'm pretty confident that they are significantly faster than Do.

comment Return Functions from parallel execution of module
That works like a charm. Thank you! PS: If you put your comment in an answer, I could mark it as solved.

comment Return Functions from parallel execution of module
@J.M. That's what I tried to describe in the edit of the question. Using your solution has (at least at my machine) the problem that I can't modify the function by multiplying something, e.g. a = 3*f; a[3] won't return a number because it doesn't evaluate the InterpolatingFunction then.

comment Return Functions from parallel execution of module
But then I'm stuck with the problem of using the result. If t is global, I can use the replacement rule. If not, I don't see another way to use it. Do you know if there is a way to copy the definition to the master kernel?

I'll do that as soon as I can accept the answer (apparently takes two days).

comment convert long string to integer list
a length of 10,000 lines or more is quite common in the files i process (fasta: see comment at the question). but as i want to be able to read different file formats, i accept to slow the code down by first generating a large string which then is processed further. reading the file and returning the string takes only a couple of seconds which is fine for me.

comment convert long string to integer list
to wrap this up, the string is broken up into many lines of constant length
