1.1   Conventions

Let us take a quick look at the conventions used throughout the Simics documentation. Scripts, screen dumps and code fragments are presented in a monospace font. In screen dumps, user input is always presented in bold font, as in:

Welcome to the Simics prompt
simics> this is something that you should type

Sometimes, artificial line breaks may be introduced to prevent the text from being too wide. When such a break occurs, it is indicated by a small arrow pointing down, showing that the interrupted text continues on the next line:

This is an artificial 
line break that shouldn't be there.

The directory where Simics is installed is referred to as [simics], for example when mentioning the [simics]/README file. In the same way, the shortcut [workspace] is used to point at the user's workspace directory.
