Typographical Conventions Used in This Document

March 26, 2020 Contributors

The typographical conventions used in this document are as follows:

  • Text in this style indicates executable programs such as ecelerity.

  • Text in this style is used when referring to file names. For example, "The ecelerity.conf file is used to configure Momentum."

  • Text in this style is used when referring to command options. For example, "list is an option for the module command."

  • Text in this style is used for emphasis.

  • Text in this style is used for added emphasis.

  • Text in this style indicates variable input—text that changes depending upon circumstances. For example, "For passwd enter the password you created during installation."

  • Text in this style indicates user input. For example, "Install the application by issuing the command ./installer."

  • Text in this style is used for literal values and variable names. For example, "A license file named license."

  • Text such as the following, ‘C’, is used to indicate a literal reference to a specific character. For example, "The letter ‘C’ in CIDR stands for ‘Classless’".

In some cases, what appears on one line on the screen or in a program listing cannot be represented on one line in some forms of the documentation. In such circumstances such, the ‘»’ character is used. For example:

1187990817@DD/0C-13258-881AAC64@T@gmal.com@0@foogroup@foo1@21@8@ »
306072.00@10.0.0.1@421 4.4.0 [internal] no adequate servers

The preceding line would appear unbroken in a log file but, if left as is, it would be truncated in a PDF version of the documentation.

Unix command-line commands are broken using the ‘\’ character, making it possible to copy and paste commands. For example:

/opt/msys/ecelerity/bin/ec_md5passwd -r "Ecelerity Command Center"
-f /opt/msys/ecelerity/etc/console_passwd ecadmin testing
