So assuming your Mac hard disk is called MAC and the files are in the directory home/maths just do <<MAC:home:maths:filename Incidentally if you want to make frequenct use of files in a particular directory then add it to your known search path. Typing $Path displays the systems default search path. To add your directory do $Path = Append[$Path,"MAC:home:maths:"] Best wishes - David. ~
