over the last ten hours I've been trying to solve a problem that seemed
simple at first. I have several dozen notebooks, each with nearly
identical contents. The only differences between the notebooks are the
data values comprised in certain data lists within each notebook. What
I need to do now is to evaluate all notebooks.
I've tried to accomplish this via a "master" notebook that contains a
list of the names of all notebooks to be evaluated. The master notebook
processes the list of file names in a for loop and utilizes the
standard notebook manipulation functions, e.g. NotebookOpen,
SelectionMove, SelectionEvaluate, and finally NotebookClose.
The problem here is that the Mathematica front end does not wait for
the kernel to finish evaluation and vice versa. This regularly results
in NotebookClose being called for the opened notebook before this
notebook has fully evaluated.
My question is: How can I batch evaluate an arbitrary number of
notebooks without using MathLink? Is this even possible?
