Hi, all,

Whilst pawing through the tutorial (2.2.2, 2.2.4 both), I noticed the following (p. 22): "iv=vecindexsort(hv), then hv=vecextract(hv,iv) and v=vecextract(v,iv)." 'vecindexsort' seems to have a new name (vecsort); and the two calls to 'vecextract' don't work; they both elicit the complaint

? X=vecextract(X,iv)
  ***   impossible assignment I-->S

Following up on my own post, things improve considerably if one uses the new name for 'vecindexsort' (then 'iv' is of the proper form, and 'vecextract()' becomes happy).
