It means "a program that runs a terminal emulator so you can type commands in, rather than click on stuff in a gui".

A slightly better phrase would be "command line".

Thank you, Nic.  I googled it and apparently this is a term used for Mac's.  I have only used Windows my entire life.

The built-in one is called terminal, and a lot of Atlassian's use Macs.  (I'm a Linux user mostly, but even there, the language is things like xTerm, Term, Terminal, iterm, terminator etc)

I'm sorry for your pain wink  .  Hopefully "command line" helped lead you to start -> run -> cmd
