I take it this is a menu system in a text console?  Many 3Com switches have
something similar to this.  Regrettably, the 3Coms don't seem to have a way
to dump the config to the command line.  This is the key issue really.
After that, you may need to massage the code a little to best deal with
your device's syntax and output.

The 3Coms have a way to upload the config to a remote TFTP server and I've
been considering using that as a workaround, ie connect to switch,
upload the config to a server, then connect to the server over tftp and
download the config for rancid to work on.  It's messy though.
