I use parentheses around command arguments when I want to make sure
the interpreter understands the argument is the value of the
eg: fileSDBRecord sbdBuffer
checkSDBResult (the result)
vs: fieldSDBRecord sdbBuffer
checkSDBResult the result
Essentially, I presume parens could be used with any command argument
that is being passed by value.
