CellularAutomaton[rule, init]

The first two definitions of CellularAutomaton[ ] are as follows:

"CellularAutomaton[rule, init, t] generates a list representing the evolution 
of the cellular automaton with the specified rule from initial condition init 
for t steps. 
CellularAutomaton[rule, init] gives the result of evolving init for one step."

This works:

In[]= CellularAutomaton[110,{1},1]

but this produces an error message saying that "three or four arguments are expected:"

In[]= CellularAutomaton[110,{1}]
