Or is this only the case when > mathematica is called to function in MathLink mode ? thanks Tobias If you invoke the Mathematica kernel with the command line flag "-batchoutput", this will set the session variable $BatchOutput to True. Here is the contents of an input file for a batch operation: AppendTo[$Echo, "stdout"] $BatchOutput Here is the command line invocation of the kernel: math -batchoutput < infile > outfile Here is the contents of outfile after execution: " Cannot initialize Motif graphics " {"stdout"} $BatchOutput True -- P.J.
