Computer understand the language of 0's and 1's called binary language. Shell accepts your instruction or commands in English and translate it into computers native binary language.

This is what Shell Does for US


• A command-line interpreter
• A utility program
• A program started for each user when they log in or open a command or tool window
• An interface between the user and the operating system (kernel)
• A way for the user to execute utilities and other Programs
• In MS-DOS, Shell name is COMMAND.COM which is also uSED for same purpose, but it's not as
powerful as our Shells are.
