Which is best will depend on your workflow and precisely what it is you want to achieve. Basically, you can put the .m files in any directory/folder you have access to. Once this is done, appending the path to that folder to $ContextPath will make that folder searched when using Needs or Get to load the .m file. For example, I've written several packages (.m) files for my use that have a variety of things I find useful at times. I've set up a folder structure in the folder returned when executing $UserBaseDirectory. Finally, I modified the init.m file found at ToFileName[$UserBaseDirectory,"Kernel"] so that $ContextPath will contain paths to the folders I want searched. Now whenever I start Mathematica, I can used Needs etc to load these files regardless of where the notebook I am currently working with is stored. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
