BB

In some cases, the functions/ concepts can be linked as sections of other pages (e.g. MetaVar as Metavar..Do), but this makes linking unnecessarily complicated and error-prone, it is easier to just create simple individual pages for those concepts

last updated 1/22/16

No suitable categories seem to be available, would need to create new categories
35 Reference to outdated processing power (512M RAM), memory or OS versions (Windows XP) Working Set Size, Writing Array-Abstractable Definitions 1/20/16;

BB

36 On many pages, it is not clear if the parameters mentioned in text are formal parameters or actual parameters E.g. SubTable 1/21/16

BB

Both formal and actual parameters / variables are frequently named A, I, x etc. This makes it hard to distinguish between them and to apply different formatting («A» vs A)
37 Sqrt / Root not assigned operator binding precedence Operators 1/21/16

BB

38 Tautology in the condition Size(i) >= Size(i) SingularValueDecomp 1/21/16

BB

One of the i's should be j
39 Should stdOut and stdErr be included as parameters in the function declaration? RunConsoleProcess 1/25/16

BB

Alternatively, the discussion could made clearer: currently stdOut and stdErr are mentioned in the discussion but missing from the formal declaration.
40 Many function pages do not have any examples E.g., CumPoisson 1/26/16

BB

I have not noted all example-less pages but could do it if needed.

Function combination could be used to add examples.
