If you are interested in an in-depth explanation of what this keyword
does I suggest you read the snort manual.  The short version is that
you tell the engine(s) that a match is more unique so that it favors

experience went as a user of both.

Take a look at scripts in your /etc/init.d/ or /etc/rc.d/ directory
for an example of how to handle these things. This link may help ;-)
