The Language Manual 1. Introduction has a section on the grammar
notation conventions. The Library Manual 1. Introduction does not. I
would agree that it should. Someone could open an issue.
Ivan, the help(ob) results sometimes assume that you have read the doc
and only need a reminder about the function signature. I strongly
recommend that you read most of the first 5 chapter of the Library
manual, especially 2 and 4.
