Yes, you can run the Unix versions of Mathematica in batch 
mode. You can prepare a file with many lines of Mathematica
input and run it in Mathematica directing output to another
file. Here is an example shell command to run Mathematica in 
batch mode:
    
    math -batchoutput infile outfile.

Note this invokes just the Mathematica kernel and not the X
Front End.

For further details see Chapter 8 of the "Mathematica User's
Guide For the Unix Shell" which came with your copy of
Mathematica.

If you need further help with this I would suggest that you
contact Wolfram Research Technical Support (support at wri.com) 
directly.

I hope this helps.
