Command Notation

Command syntax notation uses symbols to show specific conditions. Do not enter the following symbols, unless specifically instructed to do so, when actually issuing an InfoPrint Manager command:

Bar
|
Braces
{}
Note: There are some situations in which you will actually type the brace characters.
Brackets
[ ]
Bold
Bold text
Italics
Italic text
Underlining
_
Ellipsis
...
Vertical ellipsis

These symbols have the following meanings when used in the publications and in the online information:

  • A vertical bar, |, between values means that you can only enter one of the values with the command. For example:

    job-hold= {true | false}

    means that when you set the job-hold attribute, you can specify either true or false, but not both.

  • Braces, { }, around values identify required items that you must supply with the command. For example:

    job-hold= {true | false}

    means that you must enter either true or false.

  • Brackets, [ ], around values indicate that they are optional. For example:

    resource-context=directory[:directory...]

    means that you do not have to enter more than one directory, but that you can have two or more directories, each separated by a colon, : .

  • Bold text identifies a keyword that you must enter exactly as shown. For example:

    resource-context=directory

    means that you must enter resource-context= followed by a directory path.

  • Italic text identifies a variable that you must replace with an appropriate value. For example:

    resource-context=directory]

    means that you must enter something like resource-context=/homedirectory/subdirectory.

  • Underlined text identifies the default fixed value that is used if you do not specify a value. For example:

    default-printer-resolution={240 | 300 | 480 | 600}

    means that 240 is the default value.

  • An ellipsis, ... , means that you can supply more than one occurrence of a keyword or value with the command. For example:

    resource-context=directory[:directory...]

    means that you can enter more than one directory name.

  • A vertical ellipsis, ⋮, means that some items have been omitted.
