Function: load (<filename>) Evaluates expressions in <filename>, thus bringing variables, functions, and other objects into Maxima. The binding of any existing object is clobbered by the binding recovered from <filename>. To find the file,
file_search_lisp as the search directories. If
load succeeds, it returns the name of the file. Otherwise
load prints an error message.
load works equally well for Lisp code and Maxima code. Files created by
compile_file, which create Lisp code, and
stringout, which creates Maxima code, can all be processed by
loadfile to load Lisp files and
batchload to load Maxima files.
load does not recognize
:lisp constructs in Maxima files, and while processing <filename>, the global variables
%th have whatever bindings they had when
load was called.
loadfile processes Lisp files;
demo process Maxima files.

load evaluates its argument.
There are also some inexact matches for
?? load to see them.
