Description

Page 4 shows a naming convention for procedure
parameters:

  • obj - any object
  • list - list
  • z - complex

and so on.

There is no notation convention for characters and strings.
It feels a bit funny that the document uses this notation and
then x, x_1, x_2 are used for reals, but then uses "char_1"
and "char_2" for characters.
