Monospaced font is used for any text that appears on the computer screen or text that you should type. It is also used for file names, distinguished names, functions, and examples.

Bold Monospaced Font

Also, all paths specified in this manual are in Unix format. If you are using a Windows NT-based Instant Messaging, you should assume the Windows NT equivalent file paths whenever Unix file paths are shown in this book.

Italicized Font

Italicized font is used to represent text that you enter using information that is unique to your installation (for example, variables). It is used for server paths and names and account IDs.

Square or Straight Brackets

Square (or straight) brackets [] are used to enclose optional parameters. For example, in this document you will see the usage for the imadmin command described as follows:

imadmin [options] [action] [component]

The presence of [options], [arguments], and [component] indicates that there are optional parameters that may be added to the imadmin command.

Command-Line Prompts

Command-line prompts (for example, % for a C-Shell, or $ for a Korn or Bourne shell) are not displayed in the examples. Depending on which operating system environment you are using, you will see a variety of different command-line prompts. However, you should enter the command as it appears in the document unless specifically noted otherwise.
