What does it mean to `give the command "pml.fit"`?

(R is a functional language so it doesn't really have "commands". It is a language where function names are entered followed by a left-parenthesis, followed by arguments and closed by a right parenthesis. This then returns a value to the read-eval-print loop and if that expression has an assignment operator to its left then the value would be stored in a data object.)

Most packages have help pages where sample code appears at the bottom of the page for a particular function. This particular function appears designed as "internal" meaning that you should have followed the See Also links at the bottom of its page.
