What does ^ stand for?

In many editor declarations, I see the ^ symbol. Eg, in the KeyMapTutorial Project in the editor for Path concept, I see-

[>^$swing component$<]

What does the ^ symbol stand for here?

It means that cell marked with ^ has keymap or actionset (which is deprecated now).

KeyMap is mechanism similar to swing keymaps and makes possible to add shortcuts to some cells in editor. KeyMap tutorial was created to show example of their usage.

In this example control+space was used to show file chooser.

You didnt get my question.

I understand what the example does.

What I want to know is what the the symbol ^ stands for in the 'editor' editor as shown above.
