+ include all lines of given type from the configuration
+ file specified as an argument to this control. This differs from
+ <emphasis>include</emphasis> in that evaluation of the
+ <emphasis>done</emphasis> and <emphasis>die</emphasis> actions
+ in a substack does not cause skipping the rest of the complete
+ module stack, but only of the substack. Jumps in a substack
+ also can not make evaluation jump out of it, and the whole substack
+ is counted as one module when the jump is done in a parent stack.
+ The <emphasis>reset</emphasis> action will reset the state of a
+ module stack to the state it was in as of beginning of the substack
+ evaluation.
