Re: Help with a function for plotting zeros and poles
Posted: Mar 19, 2014 4:24 AM

Dear Bob

Many thanks but there is a problem: in the output of the new zeroPole function there is no distinction between poles and zeros (Please see the output of the old zeroPole function).

Again I have no idea how to get this right. Changes on the level of Flatten won't do.

Cheers

Ed
