MSC:
an infinitely often differentiable real function $f$ defined on the
interval $[0,1]$. We show that for such a function the set $\{t: \exists n\in\mathbb N_0: f^{(n)}(t)=0,\; f^{(n+1)}(t)\not=0\,\}$ is at most
countable, and if $f$ is not a polynomial then the set
$\{t:f^{(n)}(t)\not=0,\; \forall n\in\mathbb N_0\}$ has the power $\bf c$.
Keywords: $C^\infty$-functions, derivatives of higher order, Cantor sets, Theorem of Cantor-Bendixsohn, sets of first category.
