As I mentioned in What’s Terminal?, the application you’re most likely to use for accessing the command line in Mac OS X is Terminal. Since you’ll be spending so much time in this application, a brief tour is in order. In addition, you may want to adjust a few settings, such as window size, color, and font, to whatever you find most comfortable and easy to read.
The moment has arrived. Find the Terminal application (inside the folder
/Applications/Utilities), double-click it, and take a Zen moment to contemplate the emptiness (Figure 1).
