A typographical note: In the description of spock's command language below
a simplified version of Backus-Naur form (BNF) notation is used.
The conventions are:
- Angle brackets and a vertical bar ``<,>, and |'' are
used to indicate that only one of the given choices is valid, but
neither the bar nor the brackets is properly part of the
expression. For example, ``rn=<A|B|C>'' means that any of
rn=A, rn=B or rn=C may be used.
- Similarly, square brackets [ and ] indicate that
the enclosed text is optional. For example cac=a[tom]
indicates that you can type cac=a or cac=atom.
- Finally, the phrase [, selection] stands for any valid
atom selection string as discussed in §5.3. The
square brackets serve to indicate that the selection is optional.
