[latexrefman-discuss] filecontents environment/package

Hi guys,

the information on `filecontents` starts on 2595 on the latest checkout. 
It is stated, that the environment `filecontents` can only be used 
before `\documentclass`. Unfortunately, that is wrong. It can be used in 
the preamble without any problems.

Later, the refman states that package `filecontents` provides the 
starred variant. But it is really defined within the LaTeX kernel, not 
the package.

Not sure if that has always been the case, but right now the refman is 
not precise here.


Best regards
