    Using the CLI Viewer to View Configuration Text

    To view the contents of the entire configuration file in text format, select Configure > CLI Tools > CLI Viewer. The main pane displays the configuration in text format.

    Each level in the hierarchy is indented to indicate each statement's relative position in the hierarchy. Each level is generally set off with braces, with an open brace ({) at the beginning of each hierarchy level and a closing brace (}) at the end. If the statement at a hierarchy level is empty, the braces are not displayed. Each leaf statement ends with a semicolon (;), as does the last statement in the hierarchy.

    This indented representation is used when the configuration is displayed or saved as an ASCII file. However, when you load an ASCII configuration file, the format of the file is not so strict. The braces and semicolons are required, but the indention and use of new lines are not required in ASCII configuration files.
