You can create a .library file that has a script in it.

This library file can be imported into the problem.

For example, if you had a table of densities that you want to use in a 
number of problems, you could set up density.library as a resource, place
a script in it which defines the values, then:


if the file is in the same directory, or the full path name 
(/res/ohiou/chem/tables/density.library) if not.

The library needs to be a published resource.
