Sorry if I am sending this twice, but the first one doesn't seem to have worked: It looks like there aren't any ideas for solving my original problem (included below), so I'll widen my search a bit. I want any expression of the form Subscript[a, b] to be interpreted as a symbol. I can achieve this easily using the Notation package, by the following: Utilities`Notation`Symbolize[NotationBoxTag[SubscriptBox["_", "_"]]] I also want to run my code in batch mode (without a front end). However, [it appears that] the Notation package cannot be used in batch mode. Given that I can't easily make the Notation package work in batch mode, I now ask: does anyone know another way (not using the Notation package) to make all subscripts behave as symbols? Thanks again for any ideas. -Andrew Andrew Moylan wrote: > I have some code that includes (and relies upon) a call to > Utilities`Notation`Symbolize[...].
