the suffix `.elc' or `.el'; don't accept just FILE unless
it ends in one of those suffixes or includes a directory name.
If this function fails to find a file, it may look for different
representations of that file before trying another file.
It does so by adding the non-empty suffixes in `load-file-rep-suffixes'
to the file name. Emacs uses this feature mainly to find compressed
versions of files when Auto Compression mode is enabled.
The exact suffixes that this function tries out, in the exact order,
are given by the value of the variable `load-file-rep-suffixes' if
NOSUFFIX is non-nil and by the return value of the function
`get-load-suffixes' if MUST-SUFFIX is non-nil. If both NOSUFFIX and
MUST-SUFFIX are nil, this function first tries out the latter suffixes
and then the former.
If NOSUFFIX is nil, then if a file could not be found, try looking for
a different representation of the file by adding non-empty suffixes to
its name, before trying another file. Emacs uses this feature to find
compressed versions of files when Auto Compression mode is enabled.
If NOSUFFIX is non-nil, disable this feature.
The suffixes that this function tries out, when NOSUFFIX is nil, are
given by the return value of `get-load-suffixes' and the values listed
in `load-file-rep-suffixes'. If MUST-SUFFIX is non-nil, only the
return value of `get-load-suffixes' is used, i.e. the file name is
required to have a non-empty suffix.
Loading a file records its definitions, and its `provide' and
`require' calls, in an element of `load-history' whose
