Hello, Well, this is a very easy question with, maybe, a not so easy answer. I use Mathematica on a Macintosh and I have to evaluate a numerically intensive notebook. I used to run a kernel on one of the universities workstations but I don't live on campus anymore. I would hate to call the university's dialin service for 10 hours to connect to the kernel and evaluate my notebook. No sense even trying to evaluate the notebook on the Mac. Is there a way to have mathematica evaluate a Notebook just as if using the Frontend but in the background? Something as "nohup mathematica file.ma &". I just want each line to be evaluated in turn, and the result saved in the same notebook, graphics and all. I know that I could rewrite the notebook and put some Display["file", -Graphics-] to get the graphics but this would be a real pain. Any suggestions? Please send me any comments, or workarounds, PLEASE! - Ricardo Marimon rmarimon at leland.stanford.edu
