Listing of operators with optional arguments

The listing below shows those operators where one or more arguments are optional. This means the these argument are not required for the operator to execute correctly. Without the optional argument(s) the operator will function correctly but will assume some defaults. These defaults may be altered by providing the optional argumet (s).

Some operators support deeper evaluation than others—think of that in terms of how many nested levels of offset address arguments are included, or the number of implicit nested levels of evaluation. The variation might be from an explicit literal string for $Name or $Path, through data stored in an attribute, data stored in an attribute is a different note, to complex action code expressions. This aspect of operators is not well documented. The more complex the intended argument value, the better it is to do a small rest file first to ensure the argument is evaluated correctly before using the same in a large document.
