Thanks for replying.

You are assuming that everyone knows what a 'docstring' is, and how to
get it or find out about it. Unfortunately, I don't fit into that
category, so when I saw on "http://orgmode.org/Changes.html"; 'See
docstring for details.' I was, and still am, completely flummoxed by it,
which is why I looked for it in an updated 'org.pdf'.
