AutoLoading Packages-License 2079-6702, Sean Ross
I am running Mma 3.0 on a Windows 95 Pentium. I have been unable to AutoLoad packages as described in appendix A.8 of the mathematica book. I copy a package Until.m from the AddOns/ExtraPackages Folder and put it into the AutoLoad Folder. I then start mathematica and type in ??Until. I get the message "Symbol Until not found". I also have made a folder named Until and put Until.m in it. I get the same error message. 1-I have checked the Global options and the AutoLoad path. Though not in normal filename format, does have AddOns and AutoLoad in it. 2-On page 1016 of the mathematica book, the instructions say "By placing the directory for an add-on in AddOns/AutoLoad, you can .....". Those words do not apply to Windows 95. I can put files in folders or folders in folders. I do not have directories and cannot put them in folders. Could you please tell me exactly what to do with Until.m to get it to AutoLoad? I obviously do not understand the instructions in the mathematica book.
