I am running mathematica on a multi-user unix machine (Sun and HP - account
on both). I need to load several packages that are not in the /Packages
directory. Since I do not have write access to that directory (and the
admins are to slow to add it in time), I was wondering how to load the
package from my home dir?
I have tried changing the working diretory, but it doesn't seem to stay
changed - even placing it in the same cell as my Get. The closest I
have come in executing Get["/my/home/dir/PackageName.m"] but it didn't
allow me to use the commands; it just didn't give an error either.
Also, could someone explain how to interpret <<Graphis`PackageName`? I
am thinking Graphics is the subdirectory under packages, but then it
would seem I could do <<my/home/dir`Package` which doesn't work. I even
tried changing the line in the package that says "Graphics`PackageName` to
many differnt things. Well, to make a long stroy short, I spent about 5
hours yesterday cursing at the computer.
The Mathematica Book suggested
reinstalling if $Path was not correct, since $Path was where it looked for
packages. This is not an option. Is there a .rc file I could change?
Is there any hope for me loading these packages or should I just go to the
Thank you very much!
