@/: Generate and Allow Line Breaks ¶
@* command forces a line break in all output formats.
@/ command allows a line break (printed manual only).

@/ command can be useful within long URLs or other
identifiers where TeX can’t find a good place to break. TeX

@/ has no
effect on the other output formats.
