some problems finding 'math2oogl' on remote machine
Stuart, I think I'm confused about something. In the patched OOGL.m file, which now resides on the DEC RISC machine, it says to do one of the following: If you want to be able to use this package from a directory other than the geomview distribution directory, or if you want to be able to run it from a remote host, then EITHER ensure that the programs "geomview", "math2oogl", "togeomview", and "oogl2rib" are in your search path (e.g. copy them to /usr/local/bin), OR - Change the value of $GeomviewPath below to be the absolute pathname of the "geomview" shell script on your system and - Change the value of $GeomRoot below to be the absolute pathname of the geomview distribution directory on your system. The first alternative is preferred when possible. *) (* $GeomviewPath = "/u/geom/bin/geomview"; *) (* $GeomRoot = "/u/gcg/ngrap"; *) $GeomviewPath = "geomview"; $GeomRoot = "."; The first alternative won't work for the "triad" problem we e-mailed about. Following the next alternative, I changed the GeomviewPath and GeomRoot to, $GeomviewPath = "/a/grouchy/root/home/user1/jvillaci/sv"; $GeomRoot = "/a/greatwhite/root/usr/local/graphics/geomview"; Both paths are reachable when doing an rsh from the DEC RISC, so Mathematica *should* be able to see them. Then I logged into the Sun4 machine and went into the "geomview" script file, located in the GeomviewPath, and changed the GEOMROOT line to, GEOMROOT=/a/greatwhite/root/usr/local/graphics/geomview Lastly, I got into mathematica (via "math", not the notebook), on the DEC RISC and here is what happened: Mathematica 2.2 for DEC RISC Copyright 1988-93 Wolfram Research, Inc. scs0: Invalid argument scs0: Invalid argument -- Motif graphics initialized -- In:= << ~/sv/OOGL.m Warning: the program 'math2oogl' is not on your search path, > /usr7/math/Bin/Display:/usr7/math/Bin:/usr4/jvillaci/bin:/usr/local/bin:/\ > usr/ucb:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/new:/usr/bin/X11:. the Mathematica->geomview graphics package won't be able to work; change the value of $Geomroot in OOGL.m, or ensure that the math2oogl\ > programs are installed somewhere on your search path. In:= My question is this: does "math2oogl" have to reside on the machine which runs mathematica, or can it run on the machine running geomview? If it is the former, then how can I obtain a copy of the file which will run on a DEC RISC? If it is the latter, then is there some way of "piping" the mathematica output to "math2oogl" first, and then passing that on to geomview? Ok, that's all I can think of right now. Sorry if this is a wee too verbose, but hopefully it is clearer where the problem may lie. Thanks again for you help Stuart! -juan
