View Full Version : Sourcing at startup

05 May 2007, 02:03 AM
Suppose you have a script in your maya user directory called "myMel.mel"

It looks like:

global proc myMel()
print "Hello to Me \n";

global proc yourMel()
print "Hello to you \n";

Typically both functions myMel and yourMel will be accesible in memory after starup.

However, I have a more complicated (long) file where only the function with the file name gets sourced -- none of the other functions in the file get sourced. Sourcing this file manually from maya loads all functions into memory. I can't see anything that should be different from this simple example... anyone know what might make a difference for selective sourcing like this?

Hi SuperDuper10000,

Try removing "global" from all the procs that shouldn't be called directy from maya. I guess this is the way to go.
