Documentation conventions

The DataBlazer User's Guide uses certain conventions throughout.

This guide uses the following conventions:

  • If the command in the example is long, it is split up into two or more lines for readability. However, you should enter the command on a single line.

  • Brackets ([]) with text in all capital letters, and underscores instead of spaces, represent variables. For example, [USERNAME] indicates that you should insert your 1010data Insights Platform user name here.
  • In many cases, TenUp, TenDo, and Data Hauler provide both a short and long form of switches for performing the same task. The short form is a dash and a character, while the long form is two dashes and the switch name. For example, the switch that represents the user name can be represented as -u (short form) or --username (long form). This manual uses the short form of the switch in examples, when available.

    For a complete list of the short and long forms of DataBlazer switches, use the -? switch in any of the command line tools. For example, the following command returns a complete list of TenUp switches:

    $ tenup64 -?

    In addition, you can refer to the various switch reference sections in this guide:

  • The command to invoke each DataBlazer tool depends on your operating system. However, for consistency, this guide assumes a Windows 64-bit operating system and uses the following commands in its examples: tenup64, tendo, and datahaul64.
