The idea for this book began as a follow-on to the router configuration book. In larger switched network environments, it is common to see many different Catalyst platforms in use—each might have a different feature set. We have found it difficult to remember the configuration steps and commands when moving from one Catalyst platform to another. Perhaps you have. too. As with router configuration, the commands for switch configuration went into a notebook of handwritten notes. This notebook began to travel with us into the field as a network consultant and engineer.

If the question mark is typed alone, all available commands for that mode display. Question marks can also be typed at any place after a command, a keyword, or an option. If the question mark follows a space, all available keywords or options display. If the question mark follows another word without a space, a list of all available commands beginning with that substring displays. This can be helpful when an abbreviated command is ambiguous and flagged with an error. An abbreviated command might also be typed, followed by the Tab key.
