A terminal (or more accurately, a terminal emulator is a piece of software which allows the user to run text-based command-line interface programs interactively. Sometimes they are also referred to as terminal windows, or even "shells" (however, the shell is actually running inside the terminal window and is responsible for handling the commands entered interactively via the c ommand line).

Other names for terminals include console, command-line interface, command-interpreter (window) etc.
