Question: How do I save a package?

Hi everyone

I am currently trying to make my own simple package including a few procedures. So far I have been able to write some "code" that actually works when I open the document and hit "enter". I would, however, like to save the package so it can be accessed during any Maple session using the command "with". I have unsuccesfully tried to comprehend the Maple help pages regarding this question but I definitely don't want to mess things up.

This is what I have written:

mat := module ()
description "useful procedures for mathematics, physics and chemistry";
export AtomicWeight;
option package;

   AtomicWeight := proc (x) description "returns the average atomic mass of the naturally ocurring element";
   Units:-AddSystem(NewSystem, Units:-GetSystem(SI), u);
   return evalf(ScientificConstants:-Element(x, atomicweight, system = NewSystem, units))
   end proc

end module;

What should I do to save it correctly?

Thank in advance,
Mads
