A shell is a computing program that provides an interface between a user and an operating system. It interprets commands entered by the user and provides a means of controlling the operating system. The most common type of shell is the Unix shell, which is used on Unix-based systems such as Linux and macOS. The term “shell” can also refer to the computing environment provided by a particular shell program. For example, the Bourne shell and the Windows PowerShell are both shells that provide a specific computing environment. In general, a shell allows a user to interact with an operating system using commands. In addition, a shell may provide other features such as scripting support or programming languages.
