Component Definition Language

Part of the component repository is a set of files containing a definition of its structure. The form used for this purpose is the Component Definition Language (CDL). CDL defines the relationships between components and other information used by tools such as the eCosConfiguration Tool. CDL is generally formulated by the writers of components: it is not necessary to write or understand CDL in order for the embedded systems developer to construct an eCos configuration.
