I'm programming a parser for a new language, and need a word which references all kinds of quotes and brackets:
Up to now I always used "quotes and brackets", but is there another, single-term word, that can be used?
(Related: Bracket vs brace)
The language will be relatively simple. However, it's commands are completly defined by modules, and they decide how delimiters are used. Here's an example:
function "a subFunction" set background color #FFF //No semicolons - one command per line put image "/path/forest.jpg" size [1080px auto] position [0 0] //square brackets for additional information end set background color "black" animation [fadeIn 500ms linear] <$variable == 42.5> call "a subFunction" //function is only called, if the condition is true sleep 5.6s //dots and commas have no special meaning set background image /path/img.jpg //Quotes are always optional
