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.

\documentclass[pstricks,border=10pt]{standalone}
\usepackage{pst-node}
\begin{document} 

\begin{pspicture}[showgrid](-0.25,-0.25)(6,5)
\pnodes(0,3){A}(3,1){B}
\psline[showpoints](A)(B)
\uput[-90](A){A}\uput[-90](B){B}
\psline[linestyle=dashed](A)(3,4)
\psline[linestyle=dashed](A)(3,5)
\psline[linestyle=dashed](A)(3,3)
\psline[linestyle=dashed](6,2)
\psline[linestyle=dashed](B)(6,1)
\psarc{->}(0,3){2.5}{0}{(3,1)}
\psarc{->}(3,1){2.5}{0}{(3,1)}
\uput*{1cm}[(B)](A){foo} \uput*{1cm}[(B)](>A){bar}
\end{pspicture} 
\end{document}
