(Mathematica 2.2 or 3.0) OK, after stumbling onto a hint, I can answer my own question. PICTs and other graphic formats can be written to files using the new formatting capabilities of the Display[ ] command in Mathematica 3.0, as defined on p. 1070 and discussed on pages 208-210 of the MATHEMATICA BOOK, 3rd edition. If anyone has useful experience with this, in particular with writing multiple PICTs and running them as QuickTime movies, I'd still appreciate hearing from them. --siegman at ee.stanford.edu
