symbol vs atom


what is the difference between symbol and atom?

And what does g/s mean? (next to name and type in references)

Thanks !

a symbol is a string, an atom can be a symbol, an int, or a float (and some other thing which are not really exposed from the user). I’m not sure about the second sentence though.
