Command Line Guide

In this section, we will describe how to use the Solana command-line tools to create a wallet, to send and receive SOL tokens, and to participate in the cluster by delegating stake.

To interact with a Solana cluster, we will use its command-line interface, also known as the CLI. We use the command-line because it is the first place the Solana core team deploys new functionality. The command-line interface is not necessarily the easiest to use, but it provides the most direct, flexible, and secure access to your Solana accounts.
