Terminal Command Conventions

Commands or command parameters that you might type, along with other text that
normally appears in a Terminal window, are shown in


font. For example:

You can use the


command to get things done.

When a command is shown on a line by itself as you might type it in a Terminal
window, it follows a dollar sign that represents the shell prompt. For example:

$ doit

To use this command, type “doit” without the dollar sign at the command prompt in a
Terminal window, then press the Return key.
