I have an old version of Mathematica 8 and can only find information for #>9 I need to label multiple curves in a Plot[.] function with legends to the side of the graph. Your answer needs to be as simple as possible so I don't have to figure out what you said by reading the entire users manual. (2-3 lines of code MAX) Is there a "mathematica for engineers" manual that actually speaks to the highly limited areas needed by engineers,,,meaning complex functions, control systems, and plotting and labeling 2-3 dimensional data??
