The instructions for creating a new account on the Geth console state:
Tip: If you are using Geth then you can just use eth instead of web3.eth command.
Meaning accounts can be referenced by just using
eth.accounts rather than having to use
Are these two commands doing anything different under the covers, or are they the same thing? Why can we leave out the
web3 part of the command if we're using Geth?
