Unix Platform.... I've been trying to do this for a bit of time.... Basically, I would like from a C-code, to generate a list of numbers {{1,2},{2,1}} and plot their positions using mathematica's handy plotting routines.... If someone could post a way to simply execute a Plot[x^2,{x,-2,2}], and either have mathematica display it (in X), or return PostScript to the link stream or to an output file I would be extremely grateful.... An example of the type of thing I'm trying to do.... from within C-code: MLPutFunction(link,"Extend",1); PutString(link,"Plot[x^2,{x,-2,2}); If there was some way of setting the DisplayFunction so mathematica would then just plot this thing out 'twould be beautiful. If there was some way I could get it to output the plot to a postscript file, I would be joyous. If there was any way I could get useable output, basically I would be dancing around for weeks.... with much appreciation, -John Joseph
