  • NotebookWrite[ notebook , data ] writes data into a notebook at the current selection, setting the current selection to be just after the data written.
  • NotebookWrite[ notebook , data , sel ] writes data into a notebook setting the current selection to be as specified by sel.
  • The first argument of NotebookWrite is a NotebookObject.
  • NotebookWrite does essentially the same as a Paste operation in the front end: it replaces by data whatever the current selection in the notebook is.
  • NotebookWrite is the basic way to use the Mathematica kernel to modify the contents of notebooks that are being manipulated by the front end.
  • NotebookWrite automatically wraps Cell around the data you specify if this is necessary.
  • Possible settings for sel are:
  • The default for sel is After, so that NotebookWrite[ obj , data ] can be called repeatedly to insert several pieces of data in sequence.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.10.3.
