I'm trying to edit the client_customlist variable in my router with Merlin firmware, and am a bit confused with the syntax; when I export it and then look at it, most of them end with 3 >, like this:

<S|OL (WL)>00:99:69:02:99:FD>0>22>>

Does anyone know why this is? I'm not coming up with anything doing some Google-Fu.
