I would like to make my own "Package," but the book forgets to mention how
to do this exactly.
In other words, I do not know where the command go, and how to save them to
a file with a *.m extension.  Do I need to put the following in 1 cell only,

Or, do I need to put them in multiple cells?  Another article I read gives
the impression I write the lines in a Word processor, and save it as a Text
file with a *.m extension.   Could anyone point me in the right direction?
Thank you in advance.  Dana
