Using the Command Line
Like UNIX, and DOS, the BlackBerry 10 OS is based on a command-line interface that you might want or need to use instead of the GUI.
For developing software, you don't always have to use the command line; on Linux and Windows, you can use our Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that provides a graphical way to write, build, and test code. The IDE frequently uses BlackBerry 10 OS utilities, but "hides" the command line from you. For more information, see the IDE User's Guide .
