HammerDB can be run from the command line without a graphical interface. It is recommend that new users become familiar with using the graphical interface before using the command line as the command line offers the same workflow and therefore once the graphical interface is understood learning the command line will be more straightforward. The CLI implements equivalent readline functionality for navigation. The CLI can be used in conjunction with scripting to build a powerful automated environment.
