Many examples in GoToAssist documentation include capitalized reserved words such as SELECT and FROM, on multiple lines to make it easier to discuss the parts of a query. But this is not required.
PQL is not case-sensitive. And PQL supports queries using equivalent structures. You can write queries on a single line or multiple lines, using upper or lower-case letters, including nesting. The following two structures are equivalent:
SELECT bar, baz FROM /network/device WHERE a = b
select/network/device[a = b](bar, baz)
You can rearrange PQL tree expressions as follows:
SELECT * FROM /network/device WHERE a = 'b' SELECT * FROM /network/device[a = 'b']
The following structures are not quite equivalent but produce similar results:
SELECT * FROM /network/device WHERE a[name = 'eth0'] = 'b' SELECT * FROM /network/device/a[name = 'eth0'] = 'b'
