Enhancing the Scripting Language in Etherboot

by Lynus Vaz for Etherboot Project

gPXE currently features a limited command language.

The following features seem indicated: boolean operators bitwise operators conditional branches arithmetic operations temporary variables The exact structure needs to be identified and refined, so as to be intuitive and efficient at the same time.
