Hello. I am using mathematica 4.0 on a Unix worstation. I create text
files from my notebboks and run them in the background with commands
math < infile > outfile & , however if there is any graph command in the
infile, then I won't see anything in the output, not even the output of
the rest of the cells.  Actually mathematica does not run the notebook,
which I can tell by how fast it is done with it. The output file
contains a comment like Can't load graphic motif or something along
those lines, and then lines like In1:=
Out1:=  , and nothing else.

 I get the same result if I delete all the graphic-related commands, but
make the first line of my file AppendTo[$Echo,"stdout"]. This is
supposed to print the input lines in the output file, and causes trouble
probably because I use greek characters in the input.

So the bottom line is: Is there a way of getting graphic output from
background jobs? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Otto Linsuain.
