Thanks Ray > > simpkin6 at pilot.msu.edu Its hard to help when we don't know what version of mathematica or what the error messages were. I have experienced similar problems for two different reasons. The first is that there are sometimes some symbols in common with global symbols or that you may have attempted to load it in once, gotten an error message which then messed up that session. I find that using Needs[`packagename`] works more reliably than <<packagname. The second problem occurred on 2.2 after I upgraded to windows95 and the function which makes a context name into a filename expected the operating system to truncate the package name to 8.3. Other things to check: make sure the packages are in the correct directory. Look at the packages with a text editor to make sure it isn't corrupt. Also,the code <<Graphics should not load in anything. You want the code <<Graphics`Graphics` or <<Graphics`Master` to load in the package with loglogplot in it. Finally, make sure you are using the correct symbol for the single quotes. It is the apostrophe mark(`) on the upper left side of your keyboard underneath the tilde(~), not the single quote(') underneath the double quote(") on the right side of your keyboard. Hope this helps.
