Provide tips for using filters.

A module's tips should be informative and to the point. Short tips are preferably one-liners.


$delta: Which of this module's filters to use. Modules which only implement one filter can ignore this parameter.

$format: Which format we are providing tips for.

$long: If set to true, long tips are requested, otherwise short tips are needed.

Return value

The text of the filter tip.
