Hi Bob,

It means exactly that, text based rather than the 2D input you have in the
front end.  Eg. with the FrontEnd, you can pick off the integral operator
from a palette and enter limits as you would on paper (GUI right?).  With
the text-based interface, you have to type Integrate[kernel, {int_var,
lower_limit, upper_limit}];

There are two(!) text-based interfaces supplied with Win32.  They are
$TopDirectory\\MathKernel.exe &

The first of these opens a notepad-like window while the second is used in a
console.  Try plotting in both.
