Dear KV,

My group is working on a piece of software that has several debugging features. The code will be part of a motor-control system when we are done. One of the features we have added is a small CLI (command-line interpreter) that we can use to change the parameters that control the motor and to see what effect these changes have on power consumption, heat, and other values tracked by our software. We first added the CLI just for our small group, but now we have found that both the QA and factory teams have come to depend on having it in place to do testing (QA) and preshipping checks in the factory.
