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 like: 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.
