RE: Output in windows


You can open another notebook (window) and write output to it. This is done
using notebook programming. In the Help browser look under Built In
Functions\Notebooks\Notebook Operations and Notebook Manipulations.

However from the tenor of your question, I suspect that you would not want
to get into this kind of programming. What is wrong with working in a single
notebook? If you learn how to use the automatic grouping, to put in Titles
and Section Headings, etc., you can make the notebook look and perform quite

Are you new to Mathematica? What level of math are you willing to do? The
idea that Mathematica has a command to solve every math problem, even
relatively simple ones, is far from correct. For example, high school
students may learn how to "complete the square" but there is no Mathematica
command for it. It is easy enough to program a routine to do it. The point
is that mathematics, even relatively simple mathematics, not to speak of
engineering and science, is so vast that it is impossible for Mathematica to
have a command for everything; there would be millions of commands and you
couldn't find the one you wanted.

So if you are not willing to do SOME mathematics and SOME programming, you
may be disappointed in what Mathematica will do for you. On the other hand,
if you are willing to do some math and programming, then Mathematica is a
wonderful tool and will greatly amplify your efforts.

It would be very nice to be able to write the apps in one window and see
the result (output) in another one

Can anybody tell me how to do this.

please, I a not a mathematician, only someone who wants the math done by
s.o.else(mathematica) and focus on problems, so if you have an answer
try to be as plain as possible.

I also tend to think this would be useful for a lot of people
