Advanced Command Interface
Provided is a command interface with advanced function and user interface
features to overcome the deficiencies of conventional command interfaces.

knowledgeable and experienced with command bar interfaces. The key
features of the command interface are:
Consistent command names and parameters as in the command bar
Syntax assist features to aid in resolving ambiguity and error
correction of command input.
Natural language like and flexible command syntax.
Interactive command building and verification.
Command chaining to support entry of multiple commands.
Command prompting and retrieve.
Customization of command area presentation and location.
The benefits to the end user are an interface for experts which is easy to use
and more efficient than the command bar interface. For novices, the interface is
easy to learn and use.
