This may not be the most elegant way, but it should work. First, make all the cells to be executed into Initialization cells. To do this, look under the Style menu for the Attributes item. Then cd to the directory of the notebook and type math -batchoutput -run "<<Notes.ma" <<! >& math.out & Quit ! This will simply execute all your initialization cells and then Quit. Any output is send to math.out. To output a PS file, I just the command PSFile, which is defined by System`PSFile::usage = "PSFile[file,-graphics-] sends the postscript version of graphics to a file." Begin["System`Private`"] PSFile[file_String,x_] := ( Display[ToString[StringForm["!psfix > ``", file]], x]; x ) End > The question is : How can I run a notebook in the background? and is it > possible to put the plot in an output postscript file so that when I login > later the plot would be easily accessible?
