I run Mathematica for Students on 5.0.1.0 on Windows XP Professional, and haven't had any problems until recently when I began to change my init.m file. Now on first loading the kernel, the message window displays errors such as ---Error message below:--- Syntax::sntxq: The string starting at "Begin[\"System`Private`\"]" ^ has no closing quote. (line 18 of "C:\Program Files\Wol<<40>>ion\Kernel\i nit.m") ---End error message--- For reference, below is my init.m file. I do not see any extraneous or missing quotation marks, so I cannot figure out what the problem is. ---Begin init.m file--- (** User Mathematica initialization file **) (** Decide how to display graphics on this machine **) Begin[\"System`Private`\"] (* Hide any symbols which are created *) Which[ $Linked || $ParentLink =!= Null, <<\"PSDirect.m\", Environment[\"DISPLAY\"] =!= $Failed, <<\"Motif.m\", True, <<\"Terminal.m\" ] End[]; ---End init.m file--- Does anyone see anything wrong with my init.m file? -- Curt Fischer
