Annotations

argument

Introduced in the 1977 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

This metalanguage symbol represents an argument of a M[UMPS] command. An argument follows either the syntax of a specific command's argument (see closeargument, doargument, etcetera), or starts with an indirection operator (@) followed by an expression that evaluates to a list (separated by commas) of such specific arguments.
