Syntax Notation

Syntax Notation

The following table describes the notation used in this book to show the syntax for all Informatica command line programs:
Option placed before a argument. This designates the parameter you enter.
For example, to enter the user name for pmcmd, type -u or -user followed by the user name.
< x >
Required option. If you omit a required option, the command line program returns an error message.
<x | y >
{x | y}
Select between required options. For the command to run, you must select from the listed options. If you omit a required option, the command line program returns an error message.
In pmrep, curly brackets denote groupings of required options, as in the following example:
KillUserConnection   {-i <connection_id> |   -n <user_name> |   -a (kill all)}
If a pipe symbol (|) separates options, you must specify exactly one option. If options are not separated by pipe symbols, you must specify all the options.
[ x ]
Optional parameter. The command runs whether or not you enter optional parameters. For example, the Help command has the following syntax:
Help [Command]
If you enter a command, the command line program returns information on that command only. If you omit the command name, the command line program returns a list of all commands.
[ x | y ]
Select between optional parameters.
For example, many commands in pmcmd run in either the wait or nowait mode.
If you specify a mode, the command runs in the specified mode. The command runs whether or not you enter the optional parameter.
If you do not specify a mode, pmcmd runs the command in the default nowait mode.
< x | y>
<a | b>
When a set contains subsets, the superset is indicated with bold brackets
< >
A bold pipe symbol (
) separates the subsets.
In pmrep, parentheses surround descriptive text, such as the list of the possible values for an argument or an explanation for an option that does not take an argument.
