EBNF Rule: Group

Prev:EBNF Rule: Sequence
Next:EBNF Rule: Choice

Any sequence of rules may be grouped using parentheses (()). The parenthesized sequence can then be modified as a group. Parentheses also delimit sets of choices separated by pipe (|) characters.

A group can also be delimited with curly braces ({}), in which case an implicit optional whitespace-matching rule will be inserted between rules sequenced within the braces.
