Hi everyone, I am trying to figuring out if it is possible to have the Math Kernel of a Sun workstation run a little iterative program and save the results to a file being at the same time able to close the terminal session. I'll try to be more clear (please excuse my bad English and poor computing knowledge): What I really like to do is: - open a session of Mathematica (no matter if with the Front End or only on the Kernel) on the Sun Ultra 1 workstation of my laboratory (the Math version is 2.2); - start to run the Mathematica code, that has a long iteration and that in the end saves all the results on a file; - logout from the workstation, while Mathematica keeps on computing my code till the end of the iteration (so that everyone else can use the workstation and I can wait for the results to be writed in the results file without keeping busy the terminal station); Is it possible to do so? This will really save me a lot of time. Any suggestion or hint will really be appreciated. TIA Alessandro Rossi
