OS X is built on an industry-standard UNIX foundation. The Terminal application allows you to access the complete UNIX environment using standard commands, tools and scripting languages. Terminal includes numerous shortcuts that will save you time. For example, you can copy and paste text commands, and if you drag files or folders into Terminal, the correct file path appears on the command line. You can customise Terminal with your favourite fonts and background colours, including transparent, as well as manage multiple sessions from a single window using tabs.
