Perhaps if you had an option to compile the .cli file to code that uses
the existing Boost command
line interface support, then you would have a better reception here?

Personally I'm all for mini-languages, but if the compiler doesn't use
boost, and doesn't generate
code that depends on boost, your post looks a bit like spam - even if
this is in practice a forum that
reaches hard-core C++ coders who would be interested. I don't know if
anywhere else would
be appropriate - I definitely gave up on comp.lang.cplusplus (err, or
whatever it was called) a
looong time ago.

(For extra points, generate code for POCO's command line handler too ;-) )
