■ Conventions: "Administrator permissions" as used in this manual

In this manual, Administrator permissions refers to Administrator permissions for the local PC. The local user, domain user, or user of the Active Directory environment can perform tasks requiring Administrator permissions if granted Administrator permissions for the local PC.

■ Conventions: Directory names

HP-UX directory names are used in this manual as a general rule. The directory names have symbolic links, so that users of UNIX OSs other than HP-UX can use the same directory names.

When HP-UX uses a different directory name from another flavor of UNIX, both directory names are given.

■ Conventions: Fonts and symbols

Font and symbol conventions are classified as:

These conventions are described below.

General font conventions

The following table lists the general font conventions:




Bold type indicates text on a window, other than the window title. Such text includes menus, menu options, buttons, radio box options, or explanatory labels. For example, bold is used in sentences such as the following:

  • From the File menu, choose Open.

  • Click the Cancel button.

  • In the Enter name entry box, type your name.


Italics are used to indicate a placeholder for some actual text provided by the user or system. Italics are also used for emphasis. For example:

  • Write the command as follows:

    copy source-file target-file

  • Do not delete the configuration file.

Code font

A code font indicates text that the user enters without change, or text (such as messages) output by the system. For example:

  • At the prompt, enter dir.

  • Use the send command to send mail.

  • The following message is displayed:

    The password is incorrect.

Examples of coding and messages appear as follows (although there may be some exceptions, such as when coding is included in a diagram):

StoreDatabase temp DB32

In examples of coding, an ellipsis (...) indicates that one or more lines of coding are not shown for purposes of brevity.

Conventions in syntax explanations

Syntax definitions appear as follows:

StoreDatabase [temp|perm] (database-name ...)

The following table lists the conventions used in syntax explanations:

Example font or symbol



In syntax explanations, a vertical bar separates multiple items, and has the meaning of OR. For example:

A|B|C means A, or B, or C.


In syntax explanations, curly brackets indicate that only one of the enclosed items is to be selected. For example:

{A|B|C} means only one of A, or B, or C.

[ ]

In syntax explanations, square brackets indicate that the enclosed item or items are optional. For example:

[A] means that you can specify A or nothing.

[B|C] means that you can specify B, or C, or nothing.


In coding, an ellipsis (...) indicates that one or more lines of coding have been omitted.

In syntax explanations, an ellipsis indicates that the immediately preceding item can be repeated as many times as necessary. For example:

A, B, B, ... means that, after you specify A, B, you can specify B as many times as necessary.


Underlined characters indicate the default value.


This symbol is used to explicitly indicate a space.

[Figure]0: Enter one or more spaces, or none (a space is optional).

[Figure]1: Enter one or more spaces (a space is mandatory).


Code-font characters must be entered exactly as shown.


This font style marks a placeholder that indicates where appropriate characters are to be entered in an actual command.


Bold code-font characters indicate the abbreviation for a command.

■ Conventions: JP1/Base installation folder

This manual uses the following expressions for JP1/Base installation folder:

Product name

Installation folder

Location of installation folder#



In an x86 environment:

system-drive:\Program Files\HITACHI\JP1Base

In an x64 environment:

system-drive:\Program Files (x86)\HITACHI\JP1Base

#: The installation folders in this column are the default installation folders. For Windows Vista or later, the manual uses the expression system-drive:\ProgramData. The actual value is determined by the OS environment variable when the program is installed. The installation destination might differ depending on the environment.

■ Conventions: Version numbers

The version numbers of Hitachi program products are usually written as two sets of two digits each, separated by a hyphen. For example:

The version number might be shown on the spine of a manual as Ver. 2.00, but the same version number would be written in the program as 02-00.
