Syntax Diagram Conventions

Notation Conventions

 

Item

Definition / Comments

Letter

An uppercase or lowercase alphabetic character ranging from A through Z.

Number

A digit ranging from 0 through 9.

Do not use commas when typing a number with more than 3 digits.

Word

Keywords and variables.

  • UPPERCASE LETTERS represent a keyword.
  • Syntax diagrams show all keywords in uppercase, unless operating system restrictions require them to be in lowercase.

  • lowercase letters represent a keyword that you must type in lowercase, such as a Linux command.
  • lowercase italic letters represent a variable such as a column or table name.
  • Substitute the variable with a proper value.

  • lowercase bold letters represent an excerpt from the diagram. The excerpt is defined immediately following the diagram that contains it.
  • UNDERLINED LETTERS represent the default value.
  • This applies to both uppercase and lowercase words.

    Spaces

    Use one space between items such as keywords or variables.

    Punctuation

    Type all punctuation exactly as it appears in the diagram.
