[Ecls-list] Question about (load "file.ext")

I have two files, personal.lisp and friend.bday.lisp.

In personal.lisp, I do (load "friend.bday"), but ECL says it can't find
"friend.bday". I was expecting that the automatic extension adder would
add .lisp to the name I passed and I'd get the correct filename.

How does the automatic extension adding work and should it have worked here?

Thanks for any tips.

I've got around it by simply doing (load "friend.bday.lisp").
