The ``bullets'' are place holders for arguments. On a Mac you can jump  
to each one and select it by using Option-Tab to jump to the next one  
forward (and select it so that typing removes it) and Shift-Option-Tab  
to jump backwards (ditto). I'm not sure what is used on other systems  
(Alt-Tab? Ctl-Tab?).

Good Luck,
