Quick Script Command Window

      This Quick Script command window helps users easily create and
run command files by entering commands in a pop-up window.

      Quick Script is part of a software program called the
Engineering Support Processor (ESP).  The ESP program allows users to
create a file of ESP commands which can be executed.  The file may be
created by simply editing a file and entering ESP commands.  From
ESP, the file is run by entering the file name on the ESP command
line.  As simple as this is, many ESP users do not use this feature.
Instead they tend to enter the same command sequences over and over
again by hand.  Users are not comfortable creating and using command
files.

      The ESP Quick Script window allows the user to enter ESP
commands just as they would normally be entered on the command line.
The Quick Script command window has three menu buttons.  The button,
labeled "Run", runs the commands in the window just as if they had
been typed on the command line.  The button, labeled "Erase", simply
erases the commands from the window.  The button, labeled "File",
saves the commands in the window to a file.  Once the commands have
been entered, the user can run the same commands again and again by
pressing the "Run" button.

      The Quick Script command window is a general solution that
could be used by any command driven software.
