Scope of Segment Descriptions

The description of each segment includes the following information:
  • A brief introduction that explains the effect of the segment
  • A syntax diagram that shows how to enter the segment correctly
  • A table that explains the terms in the syntax diagram for which you must substitute names, values, or other specific information
  • Rules of usage, typically including examples that illustrate these rules

If a segment consists of multiple parts, the segment description provides similar information about each part. Some descriptions conclude with references to related information in this document and in other documents.
