Conventions followed in the Manual

  • Command line examples and program output are displayed in a box:
# This is a system message.
  • Menu options, button names, and other interactive controls are shown in boldface type. For example: Choose Configure... from the pop-up menu.
  • Boldface type also denotes literal portions of a command line; italic type denotes a variable that you must substitute with an actual value. For example,
Enter copy filename
