LXer: CLI Companion - Incredible Tool to Learn Command Line


Published at LXer:

Ironic is a good word for this. At first I thought, "LOL a GUI for the commandline? This makes no sense". But having checked it out briefly (via the link/website only), it actually looks rather nifty, especially for CLI newbs! I might even think about installing it myself to see what it's all about..

Thanks LXer.

It does look rather neat. I can always use extra cli help.

Huh! Two Slackers wanting something designed for Ubuntuists and Debianites! You should be ashamed of yourselves! May BOB forgive you!

Yeah. Debianites = users of Debian (my 2nd favourite distro).

Ah, but I don't use one for the terminal! That's cheating!

May Bob forgive me. I saw that the download was .deb and I backed away. Couldn't find the source code, so I reckon its not to be.

I know nothing of Debian. The only thing I've used it for was to set a cold beer on.

src2pkg might work on it, it can convert other distro's packages to Slackware packages.

I understand that, but why consider you this as a tool for Debianites? I think about feeling personally attacked !

I think it's blasphemy. They had to make a GUI about how to use the CLI ...

It's a .deb file. You Debianites are too sensitive.

I may be a total noob, but isn't this the source?
