Someone else may have a more elegant or easier way of doing this but this is how I deal with customized packages. The proper syntax for the Needs function is the following: Needs["context`file`"] Your attempts do not have the quotations in the proper order, nor do they contain the package context, which refers to the name of the folder where your package is located. Check out the ..\AddOns\StandardPackages folder and see how the other (built-in) packages are organized. I place the packages I write myself in a special folder within the path of the Mathematica StandardPackages. For example, C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\4.\AddOns\StandardPackages\myPackages If the package myPoisson.m resides in the myPackages folder, the Needs function to call this package looks like this: Needs["myPackages`myPoisson`"] Good luck, John In article <95l38f$e2r at smc.vnet.net>, Ossama Kullie <kullie at hrz.uni-kassel.de> wrote: > > > Dear Mathematica users can you help me? > > I have written the folloing package > > BeginPackage["Poisson`"] > Clear[PoissonBracket] > PoissonBracket::usage = "PoissonBracket[a, b,n] calculates the Piosson > bracket for tow functions a and b which depend on the variables p, q" > Begin["`Private`"] > PoissonBracket[a_, b_, n_] := Block[{pk, n}, > pk = > Simplify[ > Sum[D[a, q[i]]* D[b,p[i]] - D[a,p[i]] * D[b,q[i]], {i,1,n}]]] > End[] > EndPackage[] > > and I have put it in a file Poisson.m, and tried all possibilties to > load the package but it doesnot work! > Mathematica has read the file Poisson.m, but the function PoissonBracket > is not created > As Example : > Needs["Poisson`", "Poisson.m"] > give the folloing error > Needs::nocont: Context Poisson` was not created when Needs was > evaluated. > or: <<Poisson` > then > ??
