Introduced in the 1990 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

This metalanguage symbol represents an occurrence of an argument of the New command. Examples of valid arguments for the New command appear in an earlier section. The argument of the New command is either a name of a variable or a list of names of variables (separated by commas) enclosed in parentheses, or an indirection operator (@) followed by an expression that evaluates to a list (separated by commas) of such arguments.

Addition in the 1995 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard:

The intrinsic special variables $EStack and $ETrap may occur as arguments of the New command.

Approved for addition in a future M[UMPS] language standard:

The intrinsic special variable $Test may occur as an argument of the New command.
