What would be the best way to document a library function for a
programming language that doesn't require parentheses after the function
when invoked?
For example TCL, Lisp dialects, OCaml, Haskell and others.
It would be weird to see in such manual pages the function name followed
by parentheses.
(Though perhaps a price worth paying?)

One possibility would be .Ic, because many of these programming
languages have an interactive interpreter and thus functions could be
considered internal commands.

Best regards,
