12.4.1: How gri-mode names Gri commands

A major feature of Gri mode is the completion of partially typed commands. Let's examine how gri-mode decides to name gri commands. A name is determined by removing bracketed options from the syntax line of a given command. This is different from what the gri parser does. In this way, the gri command

draw label "\string" [centered|rightjustified] at .x. .y. [cm] [rotated .deg.]

is named by gri-mode simply `draw label at'. Note how the `at' stays in the name because it is not optional. So when you see `draw label at' in gri-mode's menus or prompts, you are more likely to associate the name with what the command actually does.
