Command line and terminal are the same?

Hello everybody!
Can someone please tell me what is the difference between command line and terminal?
And when do we use the command line and when do we use terminal in what cases?
Hope to get some help from you! Thank you!

Are you taking the command line course by any chance? If not, then that might be a good place to start.

Terminal is an app that is a command line interface that allows you to control your computer via commands at the command prompt. (Like one would with a GUI- (graphical user interface), but without the GUI).

Are you on a Mac or Windows? There is a built in app called Terminal on Macs (you have to download it on Windows), where you can execute commands to navigate, manipulate, create, files, directories, write scripts to automate procedures, import programs, etc.

Hi, thank you for your reply!
I’m using a windows computer with a command prompt (cmd), but before that on my computer I have downloaded ConEmu and sometimes some of the command operations of both are the same. I don’t know their difference?

It all goes back to Unix.
Here’s some basic commands you’ll use:
(But I’d recommend not using commands you don’t know or you could delete needed files, ie:
“rm -rf”) :scream_cat:
