Code Switching Topic: CLAN commands

Thank you for the recommendations! 

For KEYMAP, the manual says that "On the coding tier, keymap will look only 
for symbols beginning with the $ sign. All other strings will be ignored." 
Do I have to code the dependent tiers starting with the $ sign? I tried 
using the command "keymap +b1.2* +t%xcod  @" but it does not produce any 
results or output.
