Various packages suggest they should be installed in subdirectories of ExtraPackages. For example, Ersek's RootSearch.m, is to be installed in subdirectory Enhancements of ExtraPackages. I keep all such 3rd party add-ons in a directory tree separate from the Mathematica install directory tree. Namely, in a directory to which $UserBaseDirectory points. Thus, RootSearch.m is in directory: ToFileName[{$UserBaseDirectory, "ExtraPackages", "Enhancements"}] Yet still a command such as <<Enhancements`RootSearch` or Needs["Enhancements`RootSearch`"] fails to find its target. How can I make this work? Platform: Mathematica 5.1 for Windows (XP). -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
