"usually" you should be able to load the package

You should spend a look on your $Path. "\....\<mathematica root
directory>\AddOns" should be on it. If not, you should append it (e.g. =
AppendTo[$Path, "\....\<mathematica root directory>\AddOns"]
). You can do that automatically if you add this command to your kernel
If the above statement is element of $Path, you should also be able to lo=

ContextToFilename. I am not a unixian! This function does exist in
Mathematica 2.2 under Windows and maybe does not under Unix.
If the BeginPackage[ ] statement in your ABC.m defines an other context
then ExtraPackages you might get an error message using
For example: =

Windows 3.x it will truncate the long package names to the 8.3 filename
This will not result in creating the above context but in creating
"Alphabet`ABC`" and thus will cause an error message like "unable to crea=

Hi, everyone here,
I have a question about additional package for Mathematica3.0
After I have installed the additional package ABC under
I can start it by giving the full path, i.e. by giving
Is there any possibility to make the life easy, something like the path
