GUIs and CLIs
in thread The sad state of Perl documentation
Who says you have to stop scripting to use a GUI? I use scripts every bit as much as I did before. And a CLI is NOT the way humans work. Humans work interactively, based on multiple inputs, and multiple outputs. Humans also multitask. CLIs do not; they accept one input and one output - text - and even with multiple CLIs, you still use only one at a time. Even if you have five CLIs all running different processes, YOU can only look at one at a time. Not true on a GUI.
