Command-Line Interface (CLI) Styles

Prior to graphical user interfaces (GUIs), system administrators and operating system users had to use a command-line interface (CLI) to execute system commands. In most of our modern operating systems, the systems administrator still has the ability to use the CLIs to configure system resources, enhance security, and increase system performance. Within these CLIs, there are methods available to output data in different formats, sort data, and search for specific data stored in memory. These CLI methods include the use of pipe and filtering commands to execute system commands to do the following: configure system resources, enhance security, and increase system performance. All in all, you will be better off by understanding the benefits and limitations of CLI styles in case they would be needed one day.
