    5252generate a userconf.h which includes confdefs.h. The complete list
    5353of RTEMS configuration parameters for version 4.9.1 of RTEMS are documented in the
    54 [http://rtems.org/onlinedocs/doc-current/share/rtems/html/c_user/c_user.html Configuring a System] chapter in the User's Guide.==  Project Deliverables (code, docs, testing) ==
    55 == = Basic Requirements  ===

    57 # describing the parameters
    58 # saving user selections
    59 # generating appconfig.c (arbitrary name)
    60 # UI implementation(s)
    61 # needs to be shareable in a computer manner between the users guide and the Configuration Tool.
    62 
    63 All user dialogs need to be generated based on descriptions
    64 of the parameters. There can be no hard-coding of menu
    65 options. If we add or delete a parameter, this should just
    66 fall out naturally from the descriptions.
    67 
    68 There needs to be a file format to save user selections.
    69 This file format needs to be the same independent of UI.
    70 The user should be able to generate a configuration,
    71 come back later, load it, edit it, and regenerate C code.
    72 
    73 The UI must be portable between all major platforms including
    74 Linux, *BSD, MacOS, and Windows.
    75 
    76 And any transformation between Users Guide and UI configuration
    77 parameter must likely be command line.
    78 
    79 The UI (4.) could be a command line tools to transform (2.)
    80 which is in ASCII into a C file to be compiled. But the UI
    81 could also be a TUI (Text User Interface) using ncurses
    82 or true GUI using Python.
    83 
    84 Ultimately the definition of (1.)-(3.) make it possible to
    85 implement multiple UIs. But we need a simple portable
    86 one first that assumes little. I assume that means a TUI
    87 and next a GUI.
    88 
    89 If you are clever, you can do all of this with some transformation
    90 and magic of reading files and generating various dialogs in TUI
    91 and GUI form.
