Generic Action Code Language (GACL)
GACL is the language to describe the Detail Code for execution of ROOM Models in eTrice plugin . GACL aims at dealing with all features commonly available in imperative languages , especially Java , C/C++ . It will act as complement of current version of eTrice which uses code written in target language stored in a string as execution code . GACL would make user able to write execution code independent of target language .
