Hi Frank, we are using a couple of functions, modules, etc. in most of the Notebooks anybody in our Group creates. Currently, we just copy&paste them from older Notebooks, but I'd rather put them in an external file that everybody can load. Therefore I'd be interested in a "Mathematica Add-ons for Dummies" documentation - I just want to make sure that <<ourstuff`basicstuff` will work, and maybe write a short documentation that reminds people of function names and options. --------------------- This stuff is fairly simple -- hardly worth a "Mathematica Add-ons for Dummies". Section 2.7.10 of the documentation explains how to set a package. If you need any more detail, Meader's (old) book says pretty much what the documentation says. Should you require more information, it might be worthwhile checking out the MathGroup archives. At the start this month, there was a similar question to yours. Dave Park's reply is (as usual) worth reading. Look for "books on writing packages ...". Regards, Dave.
