Access to the privileged level usually requires a password.

Elements in square brackets ([ ]) are optional.

Alternative keywords of which you must choose one are grouped in braces ({}) and separated by vertical bars (|).

Examples use these conventions:

Nonprinting characters, such as passwords, are in angle brackets (< >).

Default responses to system prompts are in square brackets ([]).

An exclamation point (!) at the beginning of a line indicates a comment line.
