  Command line interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A command line interface or CLI is a method of interacting with a computer by giving it lines of textual commands (that is, a sequence of characters) either from keyboard input or from a script.
Command line interfaces require recall memory for routine functions that are repeated many times a day, instead of recognition memory, which some claim is the more natural way for humans to navigate and interact with their environment.
Command line interfaces are not efficient for multitasking; they do not offer the same ability to view multiple program outputs or content simultaneously.
