OSX Mavericks - how to use terminal

I want to install Command Line tools in Terminal.
Previously, before this upgrade, when I opened Terminal I saw a prompt to enable me to enter a command. Now I see a page full of previous messages but no prompt.
I assume that command line tools might enable me to do this, but how can I install it?

Terminal is the Mac Os's command line tool. You should not have to install anything except you are looking for some special command sets.

What do you want to do in command line?

The prompt should be your username followed by a percent sign.  Can you send us a screen shot of what you actually get?

Try typing ls (lower case LS) and hitting return. If terminal is working properly, it should return a directory list.

Just discovered that something made Terminal open incorrectly. I force-quitted it, reopened it and it works fine.
Sorry for troubling you.
