What means square brackets in Oracle SQL query?

I find select statement with square brackets in it. Can anybody explain what does this brackets means?


select a,b,[c] from table1;



According to oracle's documentation:

The bracket characters serve to group terms and operators found between the characters; however, they prevent penetrations for the expansion operators (fuzzy, soundex, stem).

Its a grouping character in the query.
