The command line is great for people that have memorized all the commands, know exactly what they want to do, and can run the operations in their sleep. But for everyone else it's a hinderence.


Look, most people have working legs so all those wheelchair ramps are a hinderance.

Are you saying that people who use the CLI are handicapped??

No. "1" is always 1 in any number system, independent of the base. "10" is always equal to the base. In this case, pi squared would be "100", pi cubed would be "1000" and so on.

Compare with base 10, in which "10" is 10, "100" is 10 squared and "1000" is 10 cubed.
