No.. unless the filename is really called that you just do require_once('filename.php');

then you can do $something = new Class();

What are you actually having trouble with?

I'm guessing that the colon in your file name is actually a period(.), so maybe it's:

<?php
require_once("class.palprimechecker.php");
