Hello: Would someone please help me with the function call within Mathematica? I would like to use a C program within Mathematica. Here is what the program looks like when run under a DOS window. I have included some paratheses where I comment. E:\Analysis>simulation5.ext alpha.txt params.txt output.txt 5 rows of data read from alpha file. enter level of temp, volatility, 100 year mean, thermal coefficient 63 .2 3.6 1.2 (entered with spaces) what percent is man-made carbon effect? 12 threshold (%)? 95 how many simulations? 9999 average number of years between 20%, 15%, 10%, and 5% peturburances? 50 25 15 5 (entered with spaces) here is the alpha text file that is located in the same directory as the C executable: 60 .20 61 .23 62 .25 63 .29 64 .33 Here is the params text file that is located in the same directory as the C executable: 1000000.0 0.0 4.58 0.0 2.0 99.0 85.0 10.0 15.0 2.0 50.0 20.0 10.0 20.0 We can change the input/output code in the C code to best suit Mathlink. Thanks in advance. Cheers, Steve -- Steven Taracevicz 310.749.6666 cell 702.355.6396 310.388.3265 fax
