Note that a bit above it reads:
"Like the descriptions of the other packets, each description here has a template showing the packet's
overall syntax, followed by an explanation of the packet's meaning. We include spaces in some of the
templates for clarity; these are not part of the packet's syntax. No GDB packet uses
spaces to separate its components."
