Allegro Introduces RomCLI and Expands Embedded Internet Software Family

San Jose, CA, September 26, 2000: Allegro Software Development Corporation announced the availability of its RomCLI Command Line Interface toolkit for embedded devices today at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose.
 
The RomCLI Command Line Interface toolkit is designed to speed the implementation of text-based command line interfaces for embedded devices. The RomCLI toolkit works in conjunction with the RomPager Advanced Web Server to provide unified variable access using common variable access routines.
 
The RomCLI toolkit contains Telnet services, a Command Line Handler, Parser System and the CliBuilder utility. The Command Line Handler handles command functions that are common to all device implementations such as backspace and left and right arrow functions. The Parser System handles the device specific command tree and provides functionality similar to Cisco IOS-style interfaces. The CliBuilder utility takes an XML description of the command tree and builds a compact internal representation that the Parser System uses to handle the commands.
