Question I have 2 startup files.. want to load both

hiyas all.
i have 2 scripts which i want to both load. GOOMOO utilities and TinyTools. The trouble is, they both have a file called 'usersetup.mel'.

I havent dived into the world of MEL just yet, and my programming experience is in PASCAL (so i dont understand 'c').

I can rename the files ofcourse, but i need to know how to make my own MEL script to execute both scripts.
Can anyone help?
At the moment i am just using GOOMOO because it has more tools, but TinyTools is good too.

thanks in advance
If I knew what I was doing, I'd be sane right now.

Well, first of all, you have to rename them. Then you could do the

use "\ of script";

I think, I'm not sure. Or, i think it was like, for example, MJPolyTools:

MJPolyTools setup;

or simply


That way you could just first type




Yeah... I'm not sure, its different with every MEL script.
