Managing Computations in Notebooks

The Wolfram Language's sophisticated notebook paradigm provides a uniquely powerful way to manage, organize, document, and present computationsfrom a few input and output lines to industrial-size applications.

Executing Computations

evaluate the current cell

evaluate the current selection in place

Aborting, Interrupting & Debugging

abort a computation

interrupt a computation, entering a subsession

Debugger start the debugger

Arranging Computations in Notebooks

copy down an input line (Insert Input from Above)

copy down an output line (Insert Output from Above)

double-click input cell bracket hide the output to a computation

double-click output cell bracket hide the input to a computation

Delete All Output  ▪  Notebook History

Kernel Management

Quit Kernel quit kernel, leaving the front end running

Notebook's Kernel specify the local or remote kernel to use for a notebook

Notebook's Default Context how much to localize variables in each window

Initialization Cell a cell to evaluate when the notebook is opened

NotebookAutoSave whether to automatically save after each computation
