Philip Ryan <philip.ryan@adelaide.edu.au> discovered an incorrect link to the
help file for Stata's old -Binomial()- function:

> I note [using Stata 10, latest] that -help Binomial- returns help on
> -binomial()- not on -binomialtail()-

As Nick pointed out, the -Binomial()- function was renamed to -binomialtail()-
in Stata 10 to be consistent with the naming convention for other probability
functions (see -help whatsnew9to10##data-).  -Binomial()-, an alias to
-binomialtail()- in Stata 10, continues to work but goes undocumented.  -help
Binomial()- should be linked to the help file for the -binomialtail()-
function.  This will be fixed in the next ado update.
