I've noticed that the reference manual has a ton of statements along these lines as example code:

initz := id [= exp][',' initz]
stat := 'local' initz

memberdecl := id '=' exp [';'] |    '[' exp ']' '=' exp [';'] |    functionstat | 'constructor' functionexp
stat:= 'class' derefexp ['extends' derefexp] '{'

funcname := id ['::' id]
stat:= 'function' id ['::' id]+ '(' args ')'[':' '(' args ')'] stat

I remember being very perplexed by these when I first started learning Squirrel, and I have to ask, why are they here? They look nothing like what the actual language looks like.
