You can load images (IMGDISP), draw maps (MAP), run BAR, and save the frame contents to GIF, JPEG, etc. file just like normal, but you won't see anything unless you run mcimage. The whole purpose of running scripts from things like cron is to _not_ popup the image or text windows. This doesn't mean that you can't, because you can. You just have to add running them from the BATCH file or other script. Tom
