Error Loading file in sage
I am trying to use Sage on a mac and am not particularly computer savvy (e.g. I still haven't figured out what I am meant to do with PATH and find the installation documentation a bit forbidding). I am running sage from the command line from a particular folder which contains a file "test.sage" but when I put 'load("test.sage")' I get the following error message:
TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-2-d772665a10d5> in <module>() ----> 1 load("test.sage") /Applications/SageMath/src/sage/structure/sage_object.pyx in sage.structure.sage_object.load (/Applications/SageMath/src/build/cythonized/sage/structure/sage_object.c:11186)() 990 991 if sage.repl.load.is_loadable_filename(filename): 992 sage.repl.load.load(filename, globals()) 993 return 994 /Applications/SageMath/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/repl/load.pyc in load(filename, globals, attach) 288 if attach: 289 add_attached_file(fpath) 290 exec(preparse_file(open(fpath).read()) + "\n", globals) 291 elif ext == '.spyx' or ext == '.pyx': 292 if attach: TypeError: expected string without null bytes" Earlier on I was trying the same thing and getting the message: "IOError('did not find file %r to load or attach'"
I wonder if someone could tell me what I am doing wrong or might try to fix the problem?
