Why would I want to use the command line? What is it?

The command line is a text-only interface that allows you to give SpiderOak instructions, including some which are not available in the graphical user interface (GUI). It can be used for SpiderOak users on headless machines who cannot access the GUI, or to run SpiderOak without the GUI on a system with a monitor.
