Derek Price here, one of the developers of CVS.

Just curious, I was wondering if there was some sort of standard defined that led you to use the <> characters to bracket literal strings in the usage spec for chkconfig or if you could point us to some examples of similar usages.

We were trying to reach a decision on the format to use in `cvs watch' section of the CVS manual. I initially used "(on|off)", and another developer suggested {} was the standard. Then I found your <>. Just wondering if you knew if there _was_ an existing standard. I've failed to turn up one in my google searches so far and I've yet to find another example in my man or info pages.
