An example might be to put a comment like this in your code:

** ERIN functions - Erin Hassell.

This may seem silly, but its one of those emotional things, without
her I wouldn't be much of anything.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please write. If I receive
your name and address, I will send you the latest version for free and
register your name for any other updates for free; but, please write
a comment or two on your card, I would like to make user-suggested

please include it or I might not get the letter for weeks.
