sbr — An explicit line break in a command synopsis


Content Model

sbr ::=

  • empty


For the most part, DocBook attempts to describe document structure rather than presentation. However, in some complex environments, it is possible to demonstrate that there is no reasonable set of processing expectations that can guarantee correct formatting.

CmdSynopsis is one of those environments. Within a long synopsis, it may be necessary to specify the location of a line break explicitly.

The SBR element indicates the position of such a line break in a CmdSynopsis. It is purely presentational.

Processing expectations

SBR causes a line break.


These elements contain sbr: arg, cmdsynopsis, group, rhs.
