When you install Compass, in addition to a large mixin and function library, you are also installing a command line application. The commands that Compass provides make it easy to do common tasks, very quickly from the command line — things like creating a new project, and compiling your Sass into regualr CSS. Even if you are not familiar with the command line, these are very simple to use.
