Correct

One anonymous parameter matching a template name
Wiki code
{{Tl|RootCmd}}
Main version
Sandbox version


One anonymous parameter not matching a template name (not an error, but results in a redlink)
Wiki code
{{Tl|rootcmd}}
Main version
Sandbox version


Using {{!}} (producing a piped link) and <nowiki> to illustrate a template call with a parameter
Wiki code
{{Tl|RootCmd{{!}}<nowiki>{{RootCmd|umount /mnt/gentoo}}</nowiki>}}
Main version
Sandbox version


↑ This is somewhat awkward, so you might want to avoid using this template to illustrate template calls containing parameters until it "natively supports" such use cases. In the meantime, the above link can be generated using [[Template:RootCmd|<nowiki>{{RootCmd|umount /mnt/gentoo}}</nowiki>]].

Incorrect

No parameter (error message)
Wiki code
{{Tl}}
Main version
{{Tl template error}}
Parameter unnamed not defined. For correct usage see Tl template's documentation on the unnamed parameter.
Sandbox version
{{Tl template error}}
Parameter unnamed not defined. For correct usage see Tl template's documentation on the unnamed parameter.


Two anonymous parameters to illustrate a template call containing a parameter (not supported yet)
Wiki code
{{Tl|RootCmd|umount /mnt/gentoo}}
Main version
Sandbox version


Two anonymous parameters to illustrate a template call containing multiple parameters (not supported yet)
Wiki code
{{Tl|RootCmd|umount /mnt/gentoo{{!!}}output{{=}}umount: /mnt/gentoo: not mounted}}
Main version
Sandbox version


↑ Note that everything from "umount" to "not mounted" is a single anonymous parameter.


Three or more anonymous parameters (will probably never be supported)
Wiki code
{{Tl|RootCmd|umount /mnt/gentoo|output{{=}}umount: /mnt/gentoo: not mounted}}
Main version
Sandbox version


One anonymous parameter containing {{!}} to display a pipe character (makes a piped link instead)
Wiki code
{{Tl|RootCmd{{!}}umount /mnt/gentoo}}
Main version
Sandbox version


One anonymous parameter containing {{!!}} or (equivalently) &#124; to display a pipe (exposes raw wikicode)
Wiki code
{{Tl|RootCmd{{!!}}umount /mnt/gentoo&#124;output{{=}}umount: /mnt/gentoo: not mounted}}
Main version
Sandbox version


↑ Remember that the first anonymous parameter is assumed to be a template name that can be linked to.
