Hello, Does anybody know how to directly display mathematica ps images without mathematica? I remember in the previous version of Mathematica we can invoke "motifps" directly, though it looks we cannot any more but we have to launch it through the mathlink connection. So, I wrote the following small script that launches motifps within the math frontend. This works well, but unfortunately it turns out mathematica needs to stay up as long as the image is displayed on the screen, which is the last thing I want it to do. Well, is there any solution?
