I haven't heard about Drush command line tool until recently. Books about Drupal do not talk about this nifty tool, not even the advanced ones. Drush takes the power of command line, it can be savior for lazy hacker like me. The only prerequisite for using drush is secure shell access to execute commands on your web server server.
First thing I learnt to do with drush is download, upgrade and enable modules. It a quick and efficient way of upgrade modules.
