Actually, tmp=(new-old)/2 is better. (Really, tmp=(new-old)>>1 if the compiler has a crappy optimizer). It's best to loose precision at the end of an expression rather than midstream. The revised formula will feel more responsive to relative changes while the new/2 - old/2 would be okay for boundary changes. - Craig Taylor Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
