What the name means...
First of all, how to say it: Its an acronym so you spell it out, as in "Gee You Eye For Sea El Eye". Not, never, as some people insist on calling everything gui related "Gooee Four Clee". Pay attention!.. this is important :)

"Gee You Eye For Sea El Eye" sounds like something Laurence of Arabia might scream, sword waving  in the air, as he leads his legions of fanatical Arabs into battle against the Ottoman Empire, while "Gooee..." sounds like something a mischievious child might pull out of a bodily orifice to gross out his friends...

What it means... The name, steeped in glorious history handed down through uncounted generations of loyal Gui4Cli users, means "Graphical User Interface For Command Line Interfaces", ie its a program that allows you to create guis for command line based programs.

That's what it used to be.. Nowdays Gui4Cli has developed a rich command set and you can do a lot with just the language itself, without outside programs. At least that's what we, here at Gui4Cli Universal headquarters, continuously tell myself...
