Motivated by Feller's discussion of coin tosses, we first introduce Maple procedures to analyze 2D walks whose steps are one unit up or right. Then we generalize to arbitrary steps and higher dimensions. In this realm, an analytic approach is hard or impossible, so our experimental methods will save the day.
