Cold Help System: General Information: Enhanced Command Templates

The Cold Dark further expands upon the above matching systems, specifying certain types of arguments which can be accepted for a command, where the wildcard ('*') is located. These are specified within less-than and greater-than signs (< and >). These tags simply tell the parser what type of arguments to accept in that location on the command line. An example would be:

push <user>

Where <user> must be a valid user of the system, some more examples follow.

"l?ook at <thing>"
"get|take <any> from <thing>"
"@who <user>"
"@show <object>"

More information on Enhanced Command Templates can be found in the section Programming Commands.
