Hi I'm trying to find a way to use one command to redirect Mathematica's graphics output to a file or pipe it through a command. We have Mathematica running on a NeXT here but would like to be able to run it remotely from an X-Terminal and then pipe the graphics to GhostScript to view. I've been playing around with the Display and DisplayFunction commands and I've found that this will work on a one time basis: (this is all one big command) Display["!/usr/bin/psfix > /tmp/math.ps; /usr/local/bin/gs /tmp/math.ps &", Plot3D[ Sin[x] Sin[3y], {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}] ] However, it's really difficult to do this every time. Is there any way to set $Display or $DisplayFunction so that all graphics produced afterwards will be piped to a command? Thank You Terry Longrie ------------- longrie at miller.cs.uwm.edu
