That means that you can run programs compiled for another architecture, but with the same OS (we are not emulating that part after all), on the machine you are using. I did not know about it until recently, but I'm very happy I learned about it! So today I will show it to you, so you also know about it if you ever need it!Read more..

In this article I will introduce you to the command line, or bash equivalent ones at least. These are the command lines you find in operating systems such as GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, BSD-family, and more. On Windows, you can use the Linux Subsystem, Cygwin, Git Bash or something else as well. There are many options here! On some systems these applications can be found as Terminal, Terminal Emulator, Command Line, or something similar. This guide is structured with different headings, each covering different topics related to the command line. In the info-boxes, you will find extra information that might help you with terminology or other things that will help you.
