Subject: Should not use dot notation when documenting multi-arg commands

Lisp Version: full.sysout

Description: '
On page 14.8 the documentation, for a begining user, is a bit confusing.  Attempting to use DIR, which the manual describes as   DIR files . commands   , causes one to  try and enter the function with a ''.''. This of course is wrong.  An alternative would be to describe the function as '
DIR files command1 command2 ... commandn. This should be clearer to our growing number of business users who will be learning Lisp for the first time.'
