APPENDIX A

How to Read Syntax Diagrams

This appendix describes the conventions that apply to reading the syntax diagrams used in
this book.

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.
Mixed Case letters represent exceptions to uppercase and lowercase rules. The
exceptions are noted in the syntax explanation.
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.

Paths
The main path along the syntax diagram begins at the left with a keyword, and proceeds, left
to right, to the vertical bar, which marks the end of the diagram. Paths that do not have an
arrow or a vertical bar only show portions of the syntax.
The only part of a path that reads from right to left is a loop.

Utilities Quick Reference

125

Appendix A: How to Read Syntax Diagrams


Syntax Diagram Conventions

Continuation Links
Paths that are too long for one line use continuation links. Continuation links are circled
letters indicating the beginning and end of a link:
A

FE0CA002

When you see a circled letter in a syntax diagram, go to the corresponding circled letter and
continue reading.

Required Entries
Required entries appear on the main path:

SHOW

FE0CA003

If you can choose from more than one entry, the choices appear vertically, in a stack. The first
entry appears on the main path:

SHOW

CONTROLS
VERSIONS
FE0CA005

Optional Entries
You may choose to include or disregard optional entries. Optional entries appear below the
main path:

SHOW
CONTROLS

126

FE0CA004

Utilities Quick Reference

Appendix A: How to Read Syntax Diagrams


Syntax Diagram Conventions

If you can optionally choose from more than one entry, all the choices appear below the main
path:

READ
SHARE

JC01A010

ACCESS

Some commands and statements treat one of the optional choices as a default value. This
value is UNDERLINED. It is presumed to be selected if you type the command or statement
without specifying one of the options.

Abbreviations
If a keyword or a reserved word has a valid abbreviation, the unabbreviated form always
appears on the main path. The shortest valid abbreviation appears beneath.

Loops
A loop is an entry or a group of entries that you can repeat one or more times. Syntax
diagrams show loops as a return path above the main path, over the item or items that you can
repeat:

Syntax Diagram Conventions

Read loops from right to left.


The following conventions apply to loops:
IF...

THEN...

there is a maximum number of


entries allowed

the number appears in a circle on the return path.

there is a minimum number of


entries required

the number appears in a square on the return path.

a separator character is required


between entries

the character appears on the return path.

In the example, you may type cname a maximum of 4 times.

In the example, you must type at least three groups of column


names.

If the diagram does not show a separator character, use one


blank space.
In the example, the separator character is a comma.

a delimiter character is required


around entries

the beginning and end characters appear outside the return


path.
Generally, a space is not needed between delimiter characters
and entries.
In the example, the delimiter characters are the left and right
parentheses.

Excerpts
Sometimes a piece of a syntax phrase is too large to fit into the diagram. Such a phrase is
indicated by a break in the path, marked by (|) terminators on each side of the break. The
name for the excerpted piece appears between the terminators in boldface type.
The boldface excerpt name and the excerpted phrase appears immediately after the main
diagram. The excerpted phrase starts and ends with a plain horizontal line:
