From the doc about_functions:

      The following example is a function called Get-SmallFiles. This function 
      has a $size parameter. The function displays all the files that are 
      smaller than the value of the $size parameter, and it excludes 

          function Get-SmallFiles {
              param ($size)
              Get-ChildItem c:\ | where {$_.Length -lt $Size -and !$_.PSIsContainer} 

      In the function, you can use the $size variable, which is the name 
      defined for the parameter.

      To use this function, type the following command:
          C:\PS> function Get-SmallFiles –Size 50

      You can also enter a value for a named parameter without the parameter 
      name. For example, the following command gives the same result as a 
      command that names the Size parameter:

          C:\PS> function Get-SmallFiles 50

Technically, you wouldn't use the keyword "function" when RUNNING the thing, right?

And the name should be Get-SmallFile. Singular.
