Terminal icon

Terminal is a utility from Apple Inc. that comes on all Macintosh computers running Mac OS X.

The terminal provides a command line interface to the BSD Unix that lies beneath Mac OS X.


Using Terminal, the user can manipulate files and folders, monitor processes, run applications and just about anything else that can be done in the GUI by typing text commands which are essentially tiny Unix applications that do a specific task.
