Hi Martin,

It works in the same fashion for Macs as for Unix except the
directory symbol is a : rather than /. So assuming your Mac
hard disk is called MAC and the files are in the directory
home/maths just do


Incidentally if you want to make frequenct use of files in a
particular directory then add it to your known search path. Typing


displays the systems default search path. To add your directory

$Path = Append[$Path,"MAC:home:maths:"]

Best wishes - David.
