As long as your loading using the exact filename (i.e. don't use context markers),
and you're using Mathematica 2.2.2 or above, this should work fine.  Where did you
put the file at?  Is it in the $Path somewhere?  Try doing FileNames["*"] to see if the
file shows up in your file listing (remembering, of course, that FileNames["*"] looks
only in your current directory).

Hi groups,

has anyone any troubles with long filenames in Win 95 & Mma? E.G. when
you unzip a file called Hyperbolic.m , under Win95 its lonf file name
remains the same but its DOS name becomes HYPERB~1.M; and when you try
to load it by issueing <<Hyperbolic.m , you got a "$fail open"
message. Any way to solve this little problem ?
