Hi. I've had a query from a collegue.

What are the correct names for the following:

1. [square brackets]
2. {curly brackets}
3. (common or garden variety brackets)

Everyone in my office, including myself, thinks that (common or garden
variety brackets) are called parentheses. What about the others?

I'll post the answers in a few days.

Thanks,

Peter Ekstedt
