A syntax table specifies the syntactic textual function of each character. This information is used by the parsing functions, the complex movement commands, and others to determine where words, symbols, and other syntactic constructs begin and end. The current syntax table controls the meaning of the word motion functions (see section 30.2.2 Motion by Words) and the list motion functions (see section 30.2.6 Moving over Balanced Expressions), as well as the functions in this chapter.
