    What others are saying

    • "The strength of kmdr is that it can split a complex command and explain it to you one by one. Even the meaning of parameters is explained clearly, so that you can see the meaning at a glance."

      David Wong, DevelpPaper
    • "Kmdr can understand complex, long and sub-commands. It will also understand the commands that include piping, redirection, list constructs and other bash-builtins and operators. Kmdr gets you the explanation of wide range of programs, tools, and utilities"

    • "The Linux terminal can prove confusing for new users, but it’s often the easiest way to run commands. Learning how to use the terminal can supercharge the Linux experience for users.

      Once you know what a command does, you can be comfortable using it in the future. If you’re struggling with Linux commands, you can use the Kmdr tool to explain them."

    • "If you are struggling with commands in the Linux terminal, Kmdr can help you decode them. This is a useful tool, especially for Linux beginners."

    • "There are various kinds of commands, arguments, and symbols used in combination with other programs, and it may be difficult to understand what kind of operation the command performs unless you are accustomed to it.

      The best way to find out what a command does is to read a document, but if you want a quick look, try using software called kmdr.
