If a name includes the slash character ("\" or "/") it is taken to be the name of a file. See Editing Scripts and Text Files.
If a name specifies a new symbol it is taken to be a function or operator. However, if a name is localised in a suspended function or operator but is otherwise undefined, it is assumed to be a vector of character vectors.
The type of a new object may be specified explicitly by preceding its name with an appropriate symbol as follows:
|∇||function or operator|
|→||simple character vector|
|∊||vector of character vectors|
The first object named becomes the top window on the stack. See the Dyalog for Microsoft Windows UI Guide or the Dyalog for UNIX UI Guide for details.

Objects specified in nms that cannot be edited are silently ignored. Objects qualified with a namespace path (e.g. a.b.c.foo) are silently ignored if the namespace does not exist.
