    The programming language through which a user communicates with the operating system or an application. For example, the DOS command language includes the commands DIR, COPY, and DEL, to name a few. The part of an operating system that responds to operating system commands is called the command processor.

    With graphical user interfaces, the command language consists of operations you perform with a mouse or similar input device.
