Hello together ! I hope someone can help me with the following problem: I am using Mathematica via a Mathlink Connection. As commands I am sending text-packets and I want to receive the calculated result also as Returntext-packet. This so far works well unless the calculated result is in an exponential format like p.ex. 2.93219 x 10^7 In this case I would receive in the Returntext-packet something like this: 7\0122.93219 10 (with 10 leading blanks) which is very unsatisfying for me. Any help is highly appreciated. Greetings, Rolf
