[zeromq-dev] Code-style question

currently I'm using zmq on several projects to control remote 
applications. In fact, I send 'commands' rather 'data'.

The architecture of the whole software is pretty simple. There are the 
basic functions that do the hard job (my own API). Let's call 'em 
func1(), func2() ...

Then I wrote a raw protocol to call these functions through the zmq 
connection. After a message is received, I check the first part to 
decode the command and the followings to get the parameters (if any). 
Something like this:

void parseMessage() {
	// receive the message, get cmd, argc and argv[]

	switch (cmd) {
	case CMD1:

	case CMD2:
		if (argc == 1) func2(argv[0]);

I wonder how do you implement such an interface. Do you use a method 
like this or there is something more flexible/elegant?
