why isn't this working?I create a very simple file, tester.mel, and save it in the scripts folder:

global proc tester(){print("test\n");}

I then create a simple applescript and run it:

tell application "Maya"
execute "source tester"
execute "tester"
end tell

I get the error:// Error: source tester; //
// Error: Line 1.14: Cannot find file "tester" for source statement. //

If you added the mel file after Maya had already started, you'll need to tell Maya to refresh its list of known MEL files using the 'rehash' command.

<sob> thanks very much. Is it just me, or is MEL documentation rather light?
