Now, there are stricter rules. Only Ascending or Descending ordered
chaining is possible. Syntax is simply explained.

Now, operator "<<" is used to initiate Ascending comparison and operator
">>" is used to initiate Descending comparison.

Mixed ordered chaining is not allowed anymore.

For now, I could only achieved runtime detection. Working on it. Please
see the branch below.

I will consider that.

Not allowed anymore.

In SPICE simulators ABSTOL and RELTOL are parameters used to describe
tolerances. It may be:
x == y + abstol(eps) for absolute tolerance and x == y + reltol(eps) for
relative tolerance, which eps is epsilon.
