Is Strictly Portable Web-Site Development Possible?

December 30, 2011

The activity associated with the maintenance of whatifwe.com web-site be presented here. Of critical importance is the use of strictly portable (Win32, Linux) standard methods for preparing the web-site files using the Programmable Software Development Environment.

FRIDAY: The software part that prepares one or more paragraphs has been modified.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

December 23, 2011

It is planned to update the development task file by adding a command to allow access to a different development task file. The preparation of the Programmable Software Development Environment manual will benefit from more than one level of development task files.

FRIDAY: Checkout of the Windows upgrade is complete.  The preparation of the Linux version is next.

SATURDAY: Modification and checkout of the Linux upgrade is complete.  The modification of the manual to reflect these changes is next.

MONDAY: The modifications to the development task section of the manual has been started.

WEDNESDAY: An maximum number of post office error handling error was encountered and identified. It will be fixed.

THURSDAY: The post office error has been corrected and the manual has been updated. Windows and Linux packages will be prepared for upload.

Can Programming Be Strictly Portable Relative To Language?

December 16, 2011

The activity associated with development of strictly portable methods of software development will be presented here. Included in this Portability effort will be Windows based C, C++, C#, and Visual Basic; and Linux based C and C++.

SATURDAY: I hope that all readers had a good Thanksgiving. I have examined the software parts library associated with the definition of a routine (name, arguments, return, etc).  It does not appear to require modification.  I will proceed to integrate it to the service class base where its client owns the data.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

It is planned to update the development task file by adding a command to allow access to a different development task file. The preparation of the Programmable Software Development Environment manual will benefit from more than one level of development task files.

FRIDAY: I hope that all readers had a good Thanksgiving. I appeared to have violated one of my basic principles in developing the upgrade: “Simplify and add Lightness”. I have modified the typedef.h, define.hpp and associate *.mac files to implement the capability of handling up to 16 development task files using an array.  The modification are proceeding; they appear to be a much simpler design.

MONDAY: The modifications to the devprj routines of the Programmable Software Development Environment have been completed and are ready for test.

TUESDAY: The modifications to Programmable Software Development Environment have been tested relative to a single-level development task file. Testing of multi-level development task files will commence.

WEDNESDAY: Testing of multi-level development task files has revealed an error in the revised precall, precallproc, and precallutil routines. I plan to return to the original routines.

THURSDAY: Using the original precall, precallproc, and precallutil routines was successful. Two multi-level error conditions will be tested next.
