diff working.r broken.r

also reveals that your expression is differently bracketed

broken.txt says in line 42:

 (...) = (X-(j-1)*dS);


(...) = X-(j-1)*dS;

Don't know what the rationale of this difference really is since I'm no expert for finite difference methods. But your examples apparently don't only differ in terms of checking the size of your array-values.

Does this matter?
