Executing "plot2d(sum(1/i,i,1,n), [n,1,10])" fails
with "Unrecoverable error: bind stack overflow".
Logged In: YES
plot2d assumes (unless told otherwise) that the expression
to be plotted can be evaluated at any point within [1, 10].
However sum(1/i,i,1,n) is only well-defined for integer n.
Perhaps you meant
L1 : makelist (n, n, 1, 10);
L2 : makelist (sum(1/i, i, 1, n), n, 1, 10);
L2 : L2, numer;
plot2d ([discrete, L1, L2]);
Although "plot2d(sum(1/i,i,1,n), [n,1,10]); isn't valid,
plot2d should try to do something smarter than stack
overflow in that case.
I think the problem has gone. I have no problems to get the plot with Maxima 5.19post.
Settting the status to pending and "works for me".
