Re: Mma notebooks on NexT and Geomview
Invoking Geomview from a Mathematica notebook works, but only if everything is configured correctly. The main problem is in having Mathematica find the necessary programs (mainly "math2oogl" and "geomview") on its search path. When running Mathematica from the notebook interface, its path includes only the standard directories; the relevant one is /usr/local/bin. So if math2oogl and geomview are placed in /usr/local/bin, then OOGL.m should be able to find them; otherwise, it won't. An alternative to dumping everything into /usr/local/bin is to change Mathematica's default search path. This is set in (/usr/local/bin/)mathremote on versions <= 2.1, and in /usr/local/bin/math since 2.2. A couple of pages down -- line 35 of our copy of "math" -- is a line PATH=$mathdir/$machdir/Display:$mathdir/$machdir:$PATH You could append other directories to this; ours reads PATH=$mathdir/$machdir/Display:$mathdir/$machdir:$PATH:/u/geom/bin Does that help?
