Appendix B. Operator Input Forms

This appendix presents a table of some common operator input forms together with the corresponding full forms and examples. To obtain more information on these operators, use the “front end help” (discussed in Section 1.6.3) on the corresponding full-form function names. For example, to obtain information on the operator “<<”, highlight its function name “Get” in a notebook and choose Help ▸ Find Selected Function. For many of these operators, we can also invoke online help with the ? operator, as described at the end of Section 1.3. For example, to obtain information on “<<”, enter “?<<”.
