CIEX (Command Interface Executive) is a interpreted VHLL
that was popular in the days of MS-DOS
"CIEX has been extended to work as an SNMP network manager, GPIB instrument controller, and the front end for various graphic libraries. Using CIEX in this manner may well achieve the highest productivity possible
from any programming system."
-- a slightly short-sighted quote from the README file
distributed with CIEX.
