MANUAL MAINTENANCE

July 27, 2012

The activity associated with the maintenance of Programmable Software Development Environment Manual be presented here. Of critical importance is the use of strictly portable (Win32, Linux) standard methods for preparing the associated “*.html” files.

THURSDAY: The development of the “_REPORT_FILE” Command” page has been started. The script library error being corrected was encountered. The Manual Update may needed to be put on hold until these script library corrections have been made.

Can Programming Be Strictly Portable Relative To Language?

July 27, 2012

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++.

MONDAY: The formal test of the script library has begun.  Improvements in the comment documentation is required and has begun. The Minor modifications required to render the software parts formally testable are being identified and implemented.

SATURDAY: Testing the second level operation of the common include library has been started. A problem in the script library has been encountered. The script library has not ever been formally tested.  It is probably time to consider this effort.

THURSDAY: The problem in the script library has been identified. It can be fixed by a simple patch. A patch would be a violation of my design philosophy and would be seriously inconsistant with my testing philosophy.  As a consequence, I have decided to formally test the script library. The formal testing of the common include library will be put on hold.

SATURDAY: The modified common include library has been prepared. Preparing its Monte-Carlo checkout/testing process is next.

TUESDAY: The Monte-Carlo checkout/testing process has been prepared. Checkout of the first level operation of the common include library is next.

THURSDAY: First level operation of the common include library has been checked out. Checkout of the second level operation of the common include library is next.

The activity associated with the maintenance of Programmable Software Development Environment Manual be presented here. Of critical importance is the use of strictly portable (Win32, Linux) standard methods for preparing the associated “*.html” files.

MONDAY: An additional page in the PROJECT FILE section was needed before the The “COMMAND SEQUENCE” page could be updated.  This page titled “COMMAND LINE REPORT FILE” provides an overview of the new command line reporting capabilities that have been added to the Programmable Software Development Environment. It has been successfully added to the “PROJECT FILE” section of the Manual. I should now be able to modify the  “COMMAND SEQUENCE” page.

TUESDAY: The “COMMAND SEQUENCE” page of the PROJECT FILE section has been modified.   The “Display Command” page will next be moved to a dedicated sub-directory.

THURSDAY: The “Display Command” has been successfully moved to a dedicated sub-directory.  The “_SET_TAB Command” page will be moved next to a dedicated sub-directory.
