# Copy output to mathematica

–1 vote

Hi guys,

I am currently looking for a way to copy some outputs, put them into mathematica and let mathematica solve the equations from the outputs.

But as far as I know, there is a method to obtain useful output in mathematica readable format: print(ex.mma_form()).

My latex in Cadabra outputs are too long or maybe too heavy, so the print(ex.mma_form()) results in making my cadabra crash. Then I tried some simple expressions to use print(ex.mma_form()). It worked out, showed the result it in Cadabra. But I still can not copy and paste them, is there any simple short solution for this issue?

Best, Yi

If you click the expression, there is no feedback, but you can then paste into another application.

Alternatively, write your expressions into a file. Or use the map_mma functionality (only available if you build Cadabra from source yourself and pass -DENABLE_MATHEMATICA=ON to cmake).

Dear Kasper,

Thanks a lot for the response. I found a solution by export the expression into a tex file and then copy paste it into mathematica via "ToExpress" there. It worked out perfectly. Still nice to know other solutions!

Have a nice day!
