Note that listing related functions in a function's doc is in many
programing manuals. e.g Mathematica, MS's JScript, PHP ... they are
quite useful. Because for those not expert yet of a lang (which is
majority), often they do not know similar functions or do not know if
there's manual section that list such, and often are confused about
the differences of many functions that seems the same ....
