About the Terminal

A terminal is a command line interface that allows a user to input commands directly into the system. A terminal is used because it is often necessary to use commands to perform functions, and to include values with these commands. In a graphical interface this is done through clicking on various objects; however, a graphical interface simply is not as versatile as a terminal, as it becomes too large and complex if it is to include all of the commands available.
