Find a function f: D-> R such that f is continuous but not uniformly continuous
Let p$\displaystyle \in$[0,1] and D=[0,1]-{p}. find a function f: D->R such that f is continuous at every point of D but is not uniformly continuous on D.

Would 1/x work for this as well but how do I prove it?

You only need to choose p = 0 .
