To put it more simply, what I wish to do is create a lookup table of string commands that my main program will reference.
What is the best method to do this? Is this typically done in a header?
lookup table of string commands
When I take this literally, I would create an array of strings which I could index and search for occurence of a given item.
To shorten the needed code, I would extend the array of strings to an array of structs containing the address of the function that handles the command.
