file_out
If file_out is present, it is a local file name, with out any directories, where the file will be stored. Otherwise file_in , with out any directories, is used for file_out . This specifies the file name in the web site and must be different for each image and icon command. It must have the same file extension as file_out . Leading and trailing white space in file_out is ignored.
