Avalon's help system frequently uses < > brackets to indicate examples of commands that you can enter on your prompt. This file explains the syntax of commands in greater depth.
Throughout the help system you will notice many words within < > brackets. These tend to follow on from actual commands referred to in capital letters. Avalon commands usually take the form <verb> <noun> and <preposition> and syntax examples throughout the help system are displayed in this format. Anything contained within < > brackets should be interpreted as 'any relevant word'. The syntax of the command
