Abstract: The author shows how N-functions provide a natural setting in which to establish the change of variables formula for Lebesgue or Denjoy/Perron integrals. By abolishing the need to pass to the limit under the integral sign, the validity of the classical formula is significantly extended, yielding new results even in the case of Lebesgue integrals.
