# When A is a point, is there any usage of >A notation besides for the 4th argument of \uput?

In pst-news10.pdf on page 3-4, the author introduces a new notation >A where A is a point of any type (whether a node or simply a literal (2,-1)).

>A can be passed to the <point> argument of

\uput{<labelsep>}[<direction angle>]{<rotation angle>}(<point>){<content>}


to change the behavior of \uput when a node is passed to its <direction angle> argument.

# Question

Is there any usage of >A besides the case given above?

In other words, does >A represent a new point derived from A? If yes, what kind of transformation applied on A to get the new >A?

In case it is just for changing the behavior of \uput, does it more make sense to apply > on <direction angle> rather than <point>?

There is no other case. It is only a special rotation for a node and will not be changed.
