Thanks for your reply. My file consist only of Mathematica commands, but it
seems that Mathematica can't parse it using Get, but does digests the
contents when I copy-Paste them myself.
Any idea ?

Get is used to read Mathematica expressions :
if your file named "myFile.m" consists of :
will set the variable myList to be a list containing elem1 and elem2.
if "myFile.m" consists of
will set myVar to be 2, since Plus[1,1] will evaluate to 2.
If you want to read some text, use the Read function.
