export a function from a package

export FunctionName

This command makes a function defined in a package visible at top-level (without having to use the package prefix). See the manual entry for First Example of a Package for an example.

The export command exports just a single name; you must call it separately for each exported function. All calls to export must be at the start of the package (i.e. before the first function definition).
