If ALL, use all selected lines. If

picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only
in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for

Behavior if the intersection of the
NV volumes is a keypoint or keypoints:
The resulting lines will share keypoint(s) where they touch.
The resulting lines will have separate, but coincident keypoint(s) where they touch.

set to SEPO,
NL1 is divided into two unconnected
lines with separate keypoints where they touch. See the Modeling and Meshing Guide for an illustration.
See the BOPTN command for an explanation of the options
available to Boolean operations. Element attributes and solid model boundary
conditions assigned to the original entities will not be transferred to the
new entities generated. LSBL,ALL,ALL will have no effect
since all the lines (in
NL1) will be unavailable
