Example text

A terminal is a screen window that gives you access to the command-line interface. The graphical LXTerminal is an example. When you first log in to your Raspberry Pi with your username and password, you will see the $ prompt on the screen, which tells you that the computer is waiting for you to type a command. In Adventure 1 you typed the command startx at the $ prompt to start the desktop environment (GUI) but you don’t have to use that command—you can type in any command that the computer knows about.

As an alternative to the GUI, you can communicate with the Raspberry Pi using text-based instructions, known as commands, without the need for a GUI. This form of communication is called a command-line interface, and the window into which you type the commands is called a terminal. Although the GUI might be more user friendly and easier to understand than text commands, text commands can be faster when you become more experienced in using them. You can also do more things with text commands, such as writing scripts, which are small programs that combine a series of commands to carry out routine computing tasks.
