1.1. Notation used in this guide
In this guide, the boldface font is used indicate a command or parameter, that is appearing for the first time in the normal text of a chapter. For example: "Use command ls to see the content of a directory". After the first appearance commands, parameters and file names are typed with italic font. Italic font is also used to introduce new terms within the text.
To emphasize how to write a command the courier font in a grey box is used. For example: Use following command to log in to the taito.csc.fi cluster:
ssh taito.csc.fiGeneric arguments given to commands are indicated with an italic font. For example:
rm fileIn the command examples the output is also displayed within a grey box. For example Command
lsgives following results
Some examples use a notation where both command and the results are in the same box. In these cases the command prompt is shown and the actual command is displayed with bold face letters. For example:
kkayttaj@taito:~> ls file1 file2
Note that here the command prompt ( e.g. kkayttaj@taito:~> ) is not part of the command.
