Reserved Words

The first type comprises reserved words (analogous to reserved words in a programming language), which are as follows:

   <reserved-word>: <data-object>.

Note that reserved word directive names are not case-sensitive. For example, “constant” works just as well as “Constant”.

Enter and Delete have the following syntax:


Rename has the following syntax:

   <reserved-word> <old-constant-name> .
