CC.2.5.1.2 UPS Macros

To reduce the size and complexity of Table CC.2.5-3, a macro notation is used.

For example, in Table CC.2.5-3, a table entry specifying “Include Code Sequence Macro Table CC.2.5-2a” should be interpreted as including the following table of text as a substitution. The nesting level for the sequence inclusion is indicated by the nesting level on the reference to the macro. Where the matching key type requirement is “*” it should be replaced with the matching key type requirement of the sequence attribute that incorporates this macro.

For code sequences that have requirements for N-CREATE, N-SET, N-GET, or C-FIND behavior that differ from the Macro, the code sequence contents are explicitly listed in the Table rather than specifying inclusion of the Macro.
