Interpreting Commands From a Graphical User Interface

      Disclosed is a method for saving, reviewing and repeating
sequences of commands which are entered interactively through a
graphical user interface.

      A program may be partitioned so that the graphical user
interface is disjoint from the functional part of the program.
Actions which can be performed with the graphical user interface are
associated with a corresponding set of commands.  Actions performed
by the user cause the graphical user interface to issue a command to
an interpreter in the functional unit.

      Each command received by the command interpreter is saved in a
buffer or log file.  The user may review and/or repeat any sequence
of commands.

      These commands may be in a human readable text format.  If so,
any sequence of such commands can be logged to a file which can be
read and/or executed again.
