[LLVMdev] For clarifying the "<Result>" in Instructions

Hi all, 

In the language specifications, many instructions have this form:

  <result> = ...
So, where is "<result>" defined? Is it an integral part of an instruction? 
Consider the "getelementptr" instruction: 

  <result> = getelementptr <pty>* <ptrval>{, <ty> <idx>}*

How is the "<result>" represented?
