Command line interface is one of the highest level API that can be surprisingly powerful as many Unix scripts using | and grep show. Meaningful command line arguments of a program is a prerequisite to good CLI - it guarantees an application can be instructed to do something. Well organized output of the application is necessary for including the application in a chain of others and processing its output by other utilities like grep.
