Statistics`Library` does not correspond directly to a package path, so it cannot be loaded with Get or Needs. Rather, this contents of this context come from FileNameJoin[{ $InstallationDirectory, "SystemFiles", "Kernel", "SystemResources", $OperatingSystem, "Statistics", "Library.mx" }] which is loaded automatically at startup. Loading this file ...

There is an add-on package that's worth mentioning in this context, mainly to address Wouter's comment: in the Combinatorica package, you find some group-theory related commands that are not part of the System context to which the linked guide refers. One of them is ConstructTabelau, addressing the comment by Wouter. Sometimes the built-in gems are hard to ...

This is obviously an annoying problem - you can't easily keep the flexibility to reload the package with Get during the development and at the same time keep certain functions Protected / Locked. Just Protected by itself can be dealt with, as explained by halirutan in his answer, but if you add Locked, you are out of luck. Perhaps, the easiest way out is to ...

Using << (or Get) always attempts to evaluate the package. As you have protected your definitions you get the error messages unless you start a new Mathematica kernel. Better is to use Needs to load your packages (when you are not actively developing the package in question). This checks to see if the package context is already known and only ...

When you don't restart the Kernel (by using Quit[] or restarting Mathmeatica) then you will always get this behaviour because (1) you have protected the functions yourself and (2) you try to redefine them by reloading the package. It is like evaluating the following twice: f[x_]:=x^2; Protect[f] During evaluation of SetDelayed::write: Tag f in f[x_] ...

You can pass a function (or for that matter, anything!) as an argument to another function and you'll need to modify your code accordingly. See this example: ChebyCoeff[func_, m0_] := Module[{m = m0}, f[t] = func[2 Pi t]; Tn[t] = ChebyshevT[j, 2*t - 1]; wt[t] = 1/Sqrt[t - t^2]; p = Table[Chop[NIntegrate[f[t]*Tn[t]*wt[t], {t, 0, ...
