I've read the User Guide many times, looked at the tests, demos, and other
example data. Translating these different examples to my needs is where I
keep missing the point.

For example, in doctemplate.py, lines 950-951 are:


I haven't defined myFirstPage and myLaterPages because these are one-page
reports. Leaving them out of the build arguments produces that string of
errors terminating in
AttributeError: 'function' object has no attribute 'getKeepWithNext'.
