You can read the file using the notebook front end graphical user interface that comes with Mathematica. Such an interface exists for all supported versions of Unix, but the front end is written for the X Window system, so you will need to be logged into a workstation that runs X or an X server program that runs on your local computer. If you are accessing the kernel from a telnet session and are working on a Macintosh or Windows machine, you can download a copy of MathReader, a free (in the sense of beer, not speech) application that allows you to view notebooks. There are Macintosh (PPC and 68K) and Windows (Win32) versions available. http://www.mathsource.com/cgi-bin/MathSource/General/MathReader/0208-707 If MathReader is not a viable option for you, I believe that there is a PostScript version of the MathLink tutorial that you can print with a PostScript-supporting printer. http://www.mathsource.com/MathSource/Enhancements/MathLink/0206-693/ML_Tut.ps -- P.J.
