\startcomponent...\stopcomponent is the

lowest level component in a project structure. It can contain all kind of commands and text. You can invoke project files (and the environment files the project file links to) with \project; you can invoke component-specific environment files with \environment; and other components with \component. Calls to \product do nothing.

You can type \startcomponent * to indicate that the component's reporting name is the same as the filename (without the extension).
