Flash-Enabled Mathematica

Flash-Enabled Mathematica

It seems that Dr. Song has been busy beating us to the punch! However, his application must be used on a machine that has direct access to the Mathematica kernel. If you are so blessed please enjoy the application ... if not, download the zip anyway to gain access to the contents.

I have an expired Mathematica 4.0 app, so I edited start.bat to point to it, which allowed DOS functionality but no kernel output ... very frustrating, but informative! The .swfs can also be manipulated to expose their functionality, again with no kernel output, however.

Perhaps we can apply some of his methods to our work with webMathematica, Flash and MathML. His Flash-created, Mathematica-like input pallets are very similar to my set of 20 input pallets ... my unfinished matrix/table pallet algorithm is stalling it's completion, but I'll get a presentation together soon to post in the Flash blog, with or without the last algorithm.
