We reverse-engineer a formal semantics of the Component Definition Language (CDL), which is part of the highly-configurable, embedded operating system eCos. This work provides basis for an analysis and comparison of the two variability-modeling languages Kconfig and CDL. The semantics given in this document are based on analyzing the CDL documentation, inspecting the source code of the toolchain as well as testing the tools on particular examples.
