Cisco IOS CLI vs Foundry/Brocade CLI

The CLI for foundry and cisco devices are very similar. Some commands are identical:
show interface
show run
enable

Others are slightly different:
cisco             foundry
-------------     ----------------
show ip int br    show int br

description       port-name

speed 100  
duplex full       speed-duplex 100-full

Some are notably different, such as putting a given port into a given VLAN (natively, not with 802.1q tagging or anything):
cisco:
vlan 100
int Fa 0/15
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 100
foundry:
vlan 100 name MySpecialVLAN by port
untagged eth 15
