Chapter 1. Inside the Terminal

 < Day Day Up > 

The Terminal application (/Applications/Utilities) is Mac OS X's graphical terminal emulator. Inside the Terminal, Unix users will find a familiar command-line environment. In this chapter we describe Terminal's capabilities and compare them to the corresponding xterm functionality when appropriate. We also highlight key features of another Aqua-native terminal application, iTerm. The chapter concludes with a synopsis of the open command, which you can use to launch Aqua applications from the Terminal.
