Grouping Operator( )

This command is optional.

This is the grouping operator. Wraps the selected text in parentheses to indicate expression grouping. Use when a multiple-part expression is treated as a whole by an expression quantifier.


<first> = (<given> <initial>)+;

OR (|) is also supported in a grouped expression.


<first> = (<given>|<initial>)+;

Grouped expressions can also contain other grouped expressions.


<first> = (<foreign given> | (<given> | <initial>)+)?;

To use this command:
