Has anyone cooked up any Emacs Lisp code for an editing mode for
Mathematica?  I don't have the notebook interface.

What I'd like to do is edit a formula and then hit 'go', upon which
emacs will parse the neighborhood of the cursor for a complete
Mathematica expression (something like eval-defun does for lisp-mode),
and then send it to an inferior Mathematica process, or write it to a
named pipe.  

I can rig up the pipes, but whenever I try to do something in emacs
lisp, nearby walls get head-shaped dents.

Thanks in advance, 

Tim Culver
