   The "autoload" feature allows you to call a function or macro whose
function definition has not yet been loaded into Emacs.  It specifies
which file contains the definition.  When an autoload object appears as
a symbol's function definition, calling that symbol as a function
automatically loads the specified file; then it calls the real
definition loaded from that file.  Note: Autoload.
