1.1. The Format of This Short Cut
This short cut uses the common formatting conventions to represent code, filenames, and so on. If you have never read a book on software before, the following description will prove essential.
Indented blocks of code or shell commands will appear in a fixed-width font:
uri '/', :handler => DirHandler.new('/var/www/opinions/')
A reference to a file, function, or class within a sentencelike HttpHandler, mongrel.log, or some_function(param)will be in italics.
