For time deterministic control, manufacturers and system designers of computer controlled machinery use real-time based systems to satisfy stringent requirements. Standard real-time systems contain built in kernel modules and often some type of user interface written in C. With a large multidimensional system spanning many smaller objective systems, it is hard for specialists to access real-time controlled objects on the spot. Making modifications to the user interface may require a slew of compilation and linking. This article presents an Interpretive Real-Time Linux Interface, which seamlessly integrates C/C++ applications using a C/C++ interpreter. Running the application interpretively makes the interface insensitive to user customization and product upgrading. An example of an insensitive interface is given in which a CGI web based user interface written in C has been implemented allowing users to control the frequency output of a speaker through a real-time Linux system from the web.
