Dear Toh An,
    Yes, you could probably analyze these using some form of a COMBO command.  However, the type of code chain structure you seem to be studying might be better analyzed using either the KEYMAP or CHAINS commands.  Why don't you take a look at the description of those in the manual to see if they correspond to what you are trying to do.
