It is disappointing. Considering how much of Mathematica's non-mathematical core is based on Lisp I'm surprised they didn't borrow the "dribble" file. (But surely it is something that can be coded by a user? Can't you supply an appropriate function to $Pre or $PreRead that writes out all your input to a file?) -- David On Sun, Apr 26, 2009 at 10:14 PM, Bob F <deepyogurt at gmail.com> wrote: > Mathematica just crashed on me in the middle of writing a program, and > of course everything I had done is gone.
