Bugs item #611411, was opened at 20020919 00:18 You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=611411&group_id=4933 Category: None Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Submitted By: Stavros Macrakis (macrakis) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: limit asks sign of IND Initial Comment: limit(abs(sin(x)),x,inf) foolishly asks the user Is IND positive, negative, or zero? Moreover, if the user foolishly replies zero, Maxima gets into an infinite loop! (Note that the only case where Limit(abs(IND)) should not return IND is if the limit set consists exactly of { x ,  x } for some x. This does happen, it is true, but Limit has far less subtle bugs.... Yes, I know, single argument Limit only handles the various INFs, not IND and UND.)
