Definition talk:Nearest Integer Function

From ProofWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Be careful with doing this renaming and redefining -- there are results which depend upon the existing definition of "nearest integer function" that was replaced by this one.

A better approach is to do the rename, then use "What links here" to find what links to it, then go through each page carefully changing the links to the renamed version.

There is a complication in that MediaWiki software is so appallingly substandard that it takes a significant length of time for the pages to refresh (Purge doesn't help here) so the "what links here" does not work immediately you have changed the page. Be careful not to pick up the stupid computer and hurl it out of the window. --prime mover (talk) 18:28, 28 January 2017 (EST)

Yes, I know of that method and I read the issues with it on some help page once ;) Thanks for the reminder. --barto (talk) 18:32, 28 January 2017 (EST)
