# Position of parentheses matters for type of expansion
# In the "global expansion" versions of the entire statement are joined
expand_wildcard('(Y[X=1, M=.] > Y[X=1, M=.])')
# In the "local expansion" versions of indicated parts are joined
expand_wildcard('(Y[X=1, M=.]) > (Y[X=1, M=.])')

# If parentheses are missing global expansion used.
expand_wildcard('Y[X=1, M=.] > Y[X=1, M=.]')

# Expressions not requiring expansion are allowed
expand_wildcard('(Y[X=1])')
