Just like Drew explained. The above would effectively do:

    (add-to-list 'load-path "~/elisp/package")
    (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/downloaded")
    (load-library "my-test.el")

Paths and file names in the example were arbitrary and non-important.

The -L would also be useful for setting load-path prior byte
compiling files that require other files.
