Joseph Affrunti, of Advanced Systems Concepts, on
"XLNT - DCL for Windows NT"

Mr. Affrunti is a Senior Software Engineer; his company,
Advanced Systems Concepts, has developed XLNT, the
"eXtended Language for Windows NT/95" , a powerful and easy to use,
scripting language and command shell, to facilitate command line and
Batch  interfaces.  XLNT is based on Digital's DCL with its use of
syntax,  commands and lexicals.  A free evaluation copy of XLNT will
be available after the presentation.

XLNT's rich language facilities allow more complex tasks to be
performed,  on a scheduled or non-scheduled basis, than could
otherwise be provided using standard  DOS/NT commands.  For maximum
flexibility, XLNT commands can be invoked from DOS BAT files or DOS
commands can be invoked from XLNT command procedures.

XLNT as a command shell provides a complete environment for users
and programmers to develop or issue XLNT procedures or commands.  Users
and programmers who understand DCL will love the instant familiarity of
XLNT  commands and syntax.  XLNT is not just "DCL on Windows NT".  XLNT
contains many  facilities and extensions for Windows NT/95, such as
Registry Maintenance, System  Administration and Remote Terminal Login.  

Advanced Systems Concepts was founded in 1981 as a software engineering
and consulting company specializing in the development of systems
software  solutions for various operating environments, which include
OpenVMS systems,  UNIX and Windows NT.
