Hi, Thank you for your nice article.
If you missed command line editor tool here:
"to running it from the command line:",
do you mean "vim, emacs, nano, etc" ?
If it will be that, please tell me, and add in this article.

Thank you.

@teshiba - Thanks for your question. When I talk about running a program or script from the command line, I mean from the prompt you find in a terminal window - or indeed the prompt that is available to a Linux user who isn't running a windowing desktop. For example, if you are running Ubuntu 18.04, you can click on the 'show applications' icon (the 3 x 3 grid of dots at the bottom left on the task bar when it is in its standard position) and go to the second page of applications. There you will find the application called 'Terminal'. You can run this application to enter commands from the ‘command line’ – which is simply the line where the $ prompt is in the terminal. In pretty much every Linux distribution there will be a terminal application, though some have 'improved' versions which may have another name. I hope this helps.

Sorry, meant to also say: I tend to use nano from the command line to edit with, but you could equaly use the graphical text editor that comes with your distro or even a programming specific editor like Notepadqq or Geany.
