How can I control the size of brackets

for example if I wanted ( \frac{1}{3} ) with the brackets the full size

of the expression vertically.

may nest, but do not split into multiple lines.

Substitute ( and ) with various delimiters, as you like it.

If you want to have delimiters "somewhat bigger", but full size is too

big for you, look at amslatex's \big{lr}---\Bigg{lr} macros.

1. Semantic brackets (hollow square brackets)

Can anyone tell me how to put semantic brackets in Latex2e?

They are used in denotational semantics, and also in Z to denote

bags (I think). They are basically hollow square brackets.

I can't find them in AMS and I don't have Fuzz.

Thanks

Simon.
