3.1 Notation used is obscure.  What does [...[ mean?  Should be explained.

For a general audience, examples based on Unix command shell commands
are probably not very helpful.

What is "characterized entity represented by the file".  As this is an
example, just say "crime statistics" - would that be a correct

3.2 where did 'e0' come from? - it's not mentioned in 3.1.  What is it intended to denote?

The "agent" statements are completely impenetrable to me.

How is the notation to be interpreted.  It looks a b it like some kind
of deviant Prolog, but either I've forgotten some of the basic
