1. Introduction > 1.1. Conventions Used in This Book

Conventions Used in This Book

The following typographical conventions are used in this book:

Constant width

Used to indicate anything to be typed, as well as command-line computer output, code examples, Registry keys, and keyboard accelerators (discussed below).

Constant width italic

Used to indicate variables in examples and so-called "replaceable" text. For instance, to open a document in Notepad from the command line, you'd type notepad filename, where filename is the full path and name of the document you wish to open.

[Square brackets]

Square brackets around an option (usually a command-line parameter) mean that the parameter is optional. Parameters and keywords not shown in square brackets are typically mandatory. If you see two or more options separated by the | character, it means that they are mutually exclusive; only one or the other can be specified, but not both.
