Hi Steve,

I use parentheses around command arguments when I want to make sure 
the interpreter understands the argument is the value of the 
expression:

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.
