Command-line syntax conventions

This guide uses the following command-line syntax conventions:




Brackets describe optional syntax. For example:


Bars indicate “either | or” choices. For example:
[option1] | [option2]
In this example, you must choose between option1 and option2.


Braces describe required syntax in which you have a choice and that at least one choice is required.
For example:
{ [option1] [option2] }
In this example, you must choose option1, option2, or both options.


Absence of braces or brackets indicates required syntax in which there is no choice; you must type the required syntax element.


Italics specify items to be replaced by actual values. For example:
-merge filename1
(In some documents, angle brackets are used to denote these items.)


Ellipses indicate repetition of the same pattern. For example:
-merge filename1, filename2, [filename3 ...]
where the ellipses specify, filename4, and so on.

The use of punctuation—such as single and double quotes, commas, periods—indicates actual syntax; it is not part of the syntax definition.



A note provides information that emphasizes or supplements important points of the main text. A note supplies information that may apply only in special cases—for example, memory limitations, equipment configurations, or details that apply to specific versions of the software. 


A caution indicates an action can result in the loss of data. 


A tip provides additional information that makes a task easier or more productive.
