Five commands at top of page

These five lines appear to copy the same source file to five different destination names. (I suspect this was a c+p error when generating the example lines.) This is not what the text describes.

This is a very unfortunate error to be the first example of how the FileInstall function works. (If the commands are correct, the text needs serious rework to explain the non-obvious subtleties of what is really going on.) As it is, I don't think it is possible for a naive reader to understand the FileInstall function from this example.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The input filenames should be identical to the output filenames. This was a copy/paste error when generating the example.

first paragraph

There is a bad line break in the function example at the top of the page, putting "$paramN,_" on the second line when it should be at the end of the first line. As written, this will generate an error.

Note from the Author or Editor:
This must have been caused by a formatting change. The submitter is correct - the first line should break after "$paramN,_".
