Command Syntax Conventions

The conventions used to present command syntax in this book are the same conventions used in the Cisco IOS

Command Reference, which describes these conventions as follows:

■ Boldface indicates commands and keywords that are entered literally as shown.

■ Italics indicate arguments for which you supply actual values.

■ Vertical bars (|) separate alternative, mutually exclusive elements.

■ Square brackets, [ ], indicate optional elements.

■ Braces within brackets, [{ }], indicate a required choice within an optional element.
