I could finally resolve the legal issues.
Cexp is released under the EPICS Open License.

Cexp is a C-expression interpreter with a built-in
loader for object files (using the BFD library) -
Cexp's primary target is RTEMS.

Cexp has built-in support for the basic C types
and it supports (typed) user-defined variables.

The TECLA line editor which is used by Cexp provides
comfortable features like word completion and command

The loader supports C++ (static constructors, exceptions,
"linkonce" sections etc.). I have successfully loaded
and executed quite large C++ apps (EPICS) from Cexp
running on both, linux (powerpc, x86), solaris and
RTEMS (powerpc).
