Sometimes, a command input is specific to the user’s system, such as system devices or username. Following conventions are to be used:

  • username, for example in path command /home/username
  • sdX for devices

Please note that:

  • Using such convention usually will require a note like: "Substitute the actual device/username (sda, sdb, hda, etc) in the place of sdX".
  • If multiple devices are discussed use the convention sdX, sdY, sdZ. If more than three devices need to be addressed. just begin with device sdN where is N is the last N letters of the alphabet.

Definition lists

Parameter lists should be described in the following way:

<code>Button to press</code>
Keyboard button to press.

However, why aren’t the definitions indented?
