I suggest to say this explicitly as a note.  E.g., like this:

 (If you have a function called @code{file} that you want to skip, use
 @kbd{skip function file} to specify it.)

I didn't suggest the latter; you did ;-)

I will settle for

  The type of this skip, either @samp{function} or @samp{file}.
