Document Conventions

The DynaWeb Publishers Guide uses the following conventions:




In running text, italic typeface indicates a pathname, filename, or book title; for example; the dynaweb/servroot directory.
In a syntax statement, italics represent a variable; for example:
Syntax: /1[/n]/n
Here, each instance of n represents an integer.


In running text, bold typeface indicates a keyword or command name, such as dwCollection.


A forward slash (/) represents the next directory level in a pathname.
Note: A directory pathname without a leading slash indicates that the path is relative to the DynaWeb home directory.


In a UNIX command line or a verbatim passage, a backslash (\) is a continuation character, which allows a long line to wrap without a line break.


In a menu command, a vertical bar distinguishes successive menu levels; for example: View|Group List. In syntax statements, it stands for the boolean operator or.

[ ]

In a syntax statement, square brackets mean that the enclosed portion of the syntax is optional.

. . .

In an example or syntax statement, horizontal ellipses represent omitted information; for example, part of a pathname: . . . / books
