Angle brackets in command-line arguments?

Hi all,

I am using someone else's script which expects input in the form of:

     ./ <arg1> arg2

I was wondering if the angle-brackets here have a special meaning? It
seems like
they specify an input and output stream to use in place of the
console. I could not
find anything in the python manual or Python in a Nut-shell though.

Anyone know?
