Can Programming Be Strictly Portable Relative To Language?

March 30, 2013

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++.

STATUS: I reconsidered the line indentation requirements and found that
my original conception was sadly lacking.

DETAIL: My apologies, It has been over a week since I have looked at
this project. There is only one of me.  It appears that an alias must
be assigned to an indentation in a similar manner as has been done for
a column number. These indentation aliases would be included in the
definition of a format.   This would probably be done at the beginning
of the format definition. These indentations would be incremented /
decremented during the execution phase.

NEXT TASK:   The software part for associating an alias with a specific
indentation and setting the indentation at a beginning value is the
first step.  This will be accomplished in the setup phase of this
library at the same time as the columns are defined.

I am semi-retired free-lance software engineer with hardware
engineering experience.  I specialize in error-free software
development. To provide this service, I developed a set of personal
tools.  They are available free-of-charge from my web-site.

These tools and their defining technology enabled me to develop product
at my home in strict compliance with principles of ISO-9001.

A home-based software development business can compute very favorable
with foreign firms. Working at home greatly reduces the commuting cost
and overhead of the employer. A company can get Set-Aside benefits from
a home-based business which might be staffed by a former employee.

My technology and tools can be very helpful in solving our employment
and economic problems.

I believe that my technology can greatly reduce the cost of software
development project. It was designed to enable home-based businesses to
economically develop software.

This could be of considerable value to the Federal Government. To
render it usable to the Federal Government, I needed to find a software
engineer who could advise me as to the specific requirements.

In 2010, I attempted to accomplish this goal by contacting the local
SBA office. Their web-site informed me that they provided financing and
training opportunities for a wide range of small businesses.

I thought that they might be able to help me find that software
engineer. I was wrong.

They referred me to the Federal Technology Center, an independent non-
profit organization who were not able to relate my technology to the
existing purchase orders.

My technology, properly adapted, will be of considerable value to the
Federal Government. The resulting home-based software development
businesses can save a lot of money and provide many opportunities.

I still need to find a software engineer who could advise me as to the
specific requirements. I need your help to make it so.  Please look at
my web-site. I will greatly appreciate your ideas.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

March 30, 2013

It is planned to upgrade the Programmable Software Development
Environment to include the capability of reading the paste-in text
files where the each paragraph is one very long line.  You may need to
download the latest version of the Programmable Software Development
Environment to fully understand my reports.

The ability to read the paste-in text file is needed to certify that
the file has not been changed, was developed using the agree-upon
standard libraries, or has not been illegally copied.

FRIDAY: 2013/03/29

STATUS: The modifications to precoper.cpp file for both the _GET_BUFFER
and the _END_BUFFER have been completed.

NEXT TASK: The next step will be to modify the precmac.cpp source file
to include the _READ_BUFFER, _GET_BUFFER, and _END_BUFFER commands.

I have been told by a number of knowledgeable people that doing
business with the federal government is not a good idea. Reasons range
from the inability to consider a radically different pioneering
approach to the purchasing agents being rated on how much money they
spend.

I hope that these people are wrong.  My software development technology
is based on a hardware development analogy. Consequently, it is quite
different than the current methods. Also, the use of home-based
businesses will greatly reduce the cost of a project.  In many cases,
it will be less than the micro-purchase level.

Are these people correct?  They are if history is allow to continue.
Home-Based software engineers could significantly contribute to
financial health of our country. What do you intend to do?  My
technology and home-based engineering can help.

added to the precoper.cpp source file.

Life of A Programmer Discussion Group

March 28, 2013

I have prepared a discussion group for my WordPress
Life of A Programmer Seminar. Its name is LIFE OF A PROGRAMMER.
It also has a link on Twitter.

This is the first time that I have created a community.
I appologize for any problems. I hope that it helps.

I expect proper behavoir on this site.  I will immediately
delete it if there is any problems.

Life of A Programmer — Session 1 — Are You A Software Engineer?

March 28, 2013

Your interest in this seminar tells me that you have programming experience

You probably have a college degree in information technology or related subject.

You may have a software engineering job or are looking for one.

But are you a software engineer?

Would you believe it if I told you that there is there is an ancient
obsolete computer hardware architecture that cannot be hacked from the
INTERNET?

I used this architecture in the development of a exportable version of
the KY-58 used in the first Saudi War and in the development of the
secure control system for ARABSAT (Please check my resume down-loadable
from my website).

To hack a computer, one must be able to install a program into the
target machine.  In this obsolete architecture, this cannot be done.

This obsolete architecture can be modernized. For further information,
please contact me.

Planning to start a discussion group

March 27, 2013

I have receive a significant number of messages expressing your interest in my blog.

I greatly appreciate your interest.

Several of you have requested that I moderate a discussion.

I think that this might be a good idea; consequently I am planning to
set up a discussion group on LinkedIn.  It will take a few days to
work out the specifics.

When I complete this effort, I will inform you on this blog.

Until that time, I will discontinue the seminar.  The one that I
was presenting has just ended and it makes no sense to start
the next one until the discussion group setup has been accomplished

Again my thanks

Robert Adams
