-- LOL The hard, ill-informed way by OCR-ing pdf out put from the
Function Navigator; then later the index page from on-line via copy/
paste. Uggh, Had I known about Names earlier. :-(  Btw, the Doc help
browser failed to find anything using "Function Names" (683 hits), but
no 'Names'. I am convinced the indexing for Help browser is poor;
hence, having the PDFs for deep searching is wonderful. There should
be a testing suite for searching within the Help Browser for
completeness. I hate wasting my efforts, but eventually I got there.
