That's a rather convoluted way of putting it, I meant what Google gives
as definition 1 for "instance": "an example".

My seconds use is perhaps a little unclear, sorry. I meant "the shell

single quotes] inside single quotes".

In this case, instance means "single occurrence of something", also
definition one given by "define instance" on Google. :-)
