Regarding function autoloading

Dear All,
I have a case where if i create a function in ksh say
function tester
echo "Hello"
and I want to load this function on the environment so that the next time whenever I type in tester on the prompt it displays the output attributes of the function as in like a binary.(Say cat , man).
Even if i have the word in a sample file and if i execute say ./sample(If the random file name is sample).
It should output hello.
What is the solution

I'm not sure to understand exactly what you ask for, but I suspect the answer is by setting the FPATH variable anyway, and put your tester script there.

I shall be very grateful if you could give a sample example of using FPATH variable and exporting it to environment.

This could help me in calling a function from any file desired , in the shell.

Thank you
