Abstract: We establish elliptic regularity for nonlinear, inhomogeneous
Cauchy-Riemann equations under weak assumptions, and give a counterexample in a borderline case. In some cases where the inhomogeneous term has a separable factorization, the solution set can be explicitly calculated. The methods also give local parametric formulas for pseudoholomorphic curves with respect to some continuous almost complex structures.
