A command-line interface, also known as a CLI, is a type of user interface that allows users to enter commands to be executed by a computer program. CLI is contrasted with graphical user interfaces (GUI), which allow users to interact with programs using graphical icons and menus. Command-line interfaces are often used when working with complex systems or performing tasks that require precision, such as system administration. They can also be faster and more efficient than GUIs for specific tasks. However, CLIs can be difficult to learn and use, especially for novice users. Despite these challenges, CLIs remain popular for many users and are an essential part of computing history.
