Bristol now has a text based command line interface=2C the ability to compl=
etely=20
suppress any graphical user interface and if directed to do so from ./confi=
gure
then remove all dependencies on the X11 system. It is possible to open the
CLI and the GUI at the same time.

This was based on the discussions with Julien Claassen for accessiblity for=
blind
users.

The interface is based on the way VI works=2C there is an ':insert' mode wh=
ere=20
commands can be given=2C and a separate ESC mode where the L/R cursor motio=
n
keys will scan through the different synth parameters and U/D will change t=
heir
values.

The interface has search/complete features and keys can be remapped for a=20
selection of functions.

The Insert mode has command completion=2C 50 line history with command like
recall and editing=2C plus the ability to define aliases with multiple comm=
ands per
alias and some variable replacement so that complex directives can be simpl=
ified.
The :insert prompt can be configured to report useful data on the emulator.

All settings can be saved in the emulator profile for later recall=2C the p=
rocess can
also be automated.

The code is available from sfdc=2C the changelog and news page describe the=
CLI
capabilities=2C perhaps a little haphazardly.

Regards=2C nick
