Labelling contour plots

Hello all,

I am using the command ContourPlot and everything was fine until I decided that I wanted to label my contours.

Searching the wolfram website I found a thread where the option ContourLabels is suggested as the way to deal with this.

ContourPlot[ x y,{x,-1,1},{y,-1,1},ContourLabels->Automatic]

This does not work for me (the ContourLabels option is NOT recognised by my version of Mathematica (5.1) ). Did any of you use it successfully?

I also found a related package at


originally written by Tom Wickham-Jones in 1993 and modified by Daniel Dubin in 2002. This is supposed to be labelling contours but I do not know where to install it on my computer and how to call it in a notebook in order to be able to use it.

Any help on this would be most appreciated.
