userfunhelp(Topic1 [, Topic2, ...] , usage:T) prints usage information
related to these topics.

userfunhelp(index:T) or simply userfunhelp() prints an index of the
topics available using userfunhelp().  Alternatively
help(index:"userfun.hlp") does the same thing.

scalar or vector, prints subtopics of topic Topic.  With subtopic:"?", a
list of subtopics is printed.

Suptopics1 and Subtopics2 are CHARACTER scalars or vectors, prints the
specified subtopics.  You can't use any other keywords with this usage.

In all the first 4 of these usages, you can also include help() keyword
phrase 'scrollback:T' as an argument to userfunhelp().  In windowed
versions, this directs the output/command window will be automatically
scrolled back to the start of the help output.

userfunhelp(key:key) where key is a quoted string or CHARACTER scalar
lists all topics cross referenced under Key.  userfunhelp(key:"?")
prints a list of available cross reference keys for topics in the file.

userfunhelp() is implemented as a predefined macro.

See help() for information on direct use of help() to retrieve
information from userfun.hlp.
