Can MathLink be used by shell scripts?  (With relative ease?)  I get 
the feeling that I may have to compile some intermediary C functions 
to shuttle information between mathematica and my shell scripts.  (I've
found the two papers on MathLink at, but I'd like to avoid
reading 100 pages!)

The shell scripts are for fiddling with PS files written by mathematica. 
Sometimes the scripts need a little extra information, like what to
label the axes.  If I have to, I can chop up the scripts and use
RunThrough[], but this strikes me as pretty kludgey.
