I'm going to assume the setup was the same with Mathematica 7 as for
Mathematica 8: the kernel executable is hidden inside the Mac package
If you right-click (or Ctrl-click) on that item in Finder, select Show
Package Contents. In the new Finder window that opens, look at
That's the executable you actually want. So, for example, if you type in
a Terminal command line:
then you'll get an interactive command-line session. And if you have a
file batch.m of legitimate Mathematica expressions, then the following
(assuming your current directory is the location of batch.m, of course).
Now just either add
/Applications/Mathematica.app/Contents/MacOS/MathKernel to your PATH or
make an alias for it in the directory where you're working (or some such
