Hi Bob, > Hmm... what does "text-based front end" mean, and is there > another kind? Is the standard notebook interface a text-based > front end? What's an example of a non-text-based front end > for Mathematica? It means exactly that, text based rather than the 2D input you have in the front end. Eg. with the FrontEnd, you can pick off the integral operator from a palette and enter limits as you would on paper (GUI right?). With the text-based interface, you have to type Integrate[kernel, {int_var, lower_limit, upper_limit}]; There are two(!) text-based interfaces supplied with Win32. They are $TopDirectory\\MathKernel.exe & %TopDirecory\\math.exe The first of these opens a notepad-like window while the second is used in a console. Try plotting in both. Regards, Dave.
