Yes, looks nice!

But still, should VB2005 not include basic matrix functions?

I'm (trying) porting some programs from TranEraHTBasic to VB. It came as a

bit of surprise to me that in VB2005 I had to write my own routines to do

matrix multiplication and matrix inversion. These are simply commands in

TransEraHTBasic (even in the 15-years old edition I'm using).

These commands are not too esoteric, if you work with e.g. simultaneous

equations, you really need them!

Suppose that you would want to calculate the square root of a number. And

there was not a function for that in VB2005!

I don't think anyone would be satisfied with the idee that if you wanted to

do that, that there is always the possibility to use third party software to

achieve this.
