hello all, I have been doing some exploratory work using Donald Percival's excellent spectral analysis package (written in lisp) to do the number crunching and Mm to do plotting, data manipulation, etc. This has worked quite well, using files to transfer the data. Now however I would like to start processing many more data sets and the manual alternation of control between Mm and lisp is getting tedious. There are two possible schemes I can think of to coordinate the activities (I'm happy to continue passing data via files). One is to communicate with lisp using mathlink and the other is to control Mm via AppleEvents. But... 1. Am I correct that Mm doesn't accept AppleEvents at the level that I need to do simple synchronization ? 2. Has anyone done any work on a lisp maclink interface (especially on the mac?) Any suggestions would be welcomed. Mike Burns Rowland Institute for Science Cambridge, MA
