Workshop mo 9 may: What is a command line? Beginners welcome

One commonly interacts with computers through a graphical user interface (GUI), for example the desktop interface of Microsoft Windows or Mac OS. However, you can also use a text interface known as the command line (or the terminal, shell, console or prompt). While it may appear complex at first sight, it offers a lot of power and flexibility for telling the computer what to do. Some programs and installations require usage of the command line.
