Command line and code.

I’m old school and believe that what you type in at the command prompt isn’t necessarily a code, but is nearly always consists of one or more commands (which is why the command line, sometimes referred to as “terminal”, is called the command line). It might seem like some kind of secret code to someone who doesn’t understand what it does, but the intent is to command the computer to do something. What I type might sometimes include codes, but it’s still a command. I might enclose it in “code tags” when sharing it on a forum, but that has more to do with formatting than what it is.
