[WP34s] Matrix M.xx vs. M-xx



#2

The matrix functions have just been renamed again from M.xxx to M-xxx

In principle that's ok, but 2 functions look a bit ugly now: M-+ and M-+* ;-)


#3

I did that because navigating in the catalog(ue)s is harder with a '.' in the name (I keep forgetting to press f before the dot and never get where I want to.) I agree that the two functions you mention don't look pretty. Maybe we change that back to '.' or even no delimiter at all. For me, M-DET or M.DET don't look any better then MDET.


#4

Yes, M+ and M+* without delimiter would be better.

But for all other matrix functions I would keep the delimiter, otherwise some keywords would in fact be quite counterintuitive. And changing it only for some (e.g. MDET, MINV) won't be consistent.


#5

It's Walter's and Pauli's decision.

I know - as usual ... ;-)

Thus Marcus changed it ;-)
