Definitions Edit

Data Edit

Syntax is the rules and conventions that one needs to know or follow in order to validly record information, or interpret previously recorded information, for a specific purpose. Thus, a syntax is a grammar. Such rules and conventions may be either explicit or implicit. When explicit, such syntactical elements tend to be the structural, or format-related, data elements that are not required when a direct data entry architecture is used. Ultimately, though, there is not a perfectly clear division between the syntactical elements and the business data content.

Programming language Edit

The syntax of a programming language is the set of rules that define the combinations of symbols that are considered to be correctly-structured programs in that language.
