The means of exchanging expressions with an external program as you describe can be done through MathLink API C functions. The API functions are platform-independent and are described in _The Mathematica Book_ (Third Edition), Section 2.12. Creating interfaces between Mathematica and other programs requires the MathLink Developer's kit for your platform. This kit comes with professional versions of Mathematica, but not in the student version. You can get the kit from the MathLink pages at URL: http://www.wolfram.com/support/MathLink/ Support for MathLink is not available to users of student versions. Information on how to use the MathLink library and header file with your compiler is provided under the online documentation. You can display this information in the Mathematica Help Browser by evaluating the following command in a notebook: FrontEndExecute[FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup["AddOns", "Compilers"]] -- P.J.
