Re: Math on Sun..Help!
if i am not mistaken, another alternative similar to that suggested by your administrator would be to use the unix command "nice" as in yourSystem% nice mathematica or yourSystem% nice math this would give your process lower priority in the scheduling and allow others to make more progress. nice has options for setting the level of niceness. ps you can also use $Display(either globally setting or as an option) to write postscript file instead of showing on screen and use Save to save objects from a batch session. see page 30 of mathematicas sun workstation users' guide. the following sends output to my printer PSPrint[System`Private`x_] := (Display["!psfix | lpr", System`Private`x]; System`Private`x)
