You may want to consider doing the following: 1) Select the cells in your notebook that contain expressions that you want to evaluate. 2) Click on the front end menu command sequence Cell -> Cell Properties -> Initialization Cell 3) Use the front end menu command File -> Save As Special -> Package This will save the notebook with only the Initialization Cells uncommented out. 4) Paste the following Cell expression in a notebook and click "Yes" on the dialog box that results. Cell[TextData[ButtonBox["Learn more about batch mode", ButtonData:>"Using Kernel Directly (X)", Active->True, ButtonStyle->"GettingStartedLink"]], "Text"] This will create a hyperlink that will give you instructions for running Mathematica in batch mode. 5) If you would like the output from the batch session to be logged as a notebook as well, you may want to consider using Roman Maeder's NotebookLog.m package that is discussed in his book _Programming in Mathematica_. The package comes on the Mathematica installation in directory $TopDirectory/AddOns/ExtraPackages/ProgrammingInMathematica -- P.J.
