Look at statecharts and finite state machines. These are easily coded,
and give a very clean way to express solutions to event-driven
problems.

I'm working on building a visual statechart compiler for PICs and
other small micros, as well as a set of assembler macros for doing
state machine coding on the PIC 18F series. I hope to make it into a
product.

The book "Practical Statecharts in C/C++" by Miro Samek is quite good.
You can ignore its focus on C and C++ if you wish (though he provides
working frameworks for both languages).

His web site is at http://www.quantum-leaps.com and he has quite a bit
of good material there.
