Development of Basic Text Write/Certification Utility Libraries

The effort associated with the development, upgrading and testing the  basic output software parts library will be documented here. If there is anyone who desires to assist me in this development process, please contact me by e-mail.

The affected software parts and their functional description are listed below. The purpose of this library is to be able to write or certify one or more text files. These parts are similar to object oriented subroutines. The parts that have been completely tested are noted.

_BASIC_OUT_CONSTRUCT: Initializes the library for a write or certification function.

_BASIC_OUT_DESTROY:   Completes the operation by eliminating the specific setup. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_BEGIN_SETUP: Begins a setup procedure by which the files to be processed are specified. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_ADD_FILE: Add a file to the process list.

_BASIC_OUT_END_SETUP: Completes the setup procedure. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_GET_WRITE_NO: Utility: Search the output file list for the the specified file. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_GET_READ_NO: Utility: Search the input file list for the the specified file. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_ALIAS_FORMAT: Utility: Check for duplicate file specification.

_BASIC_OUT_FILES_BEGIN: Begin the processing of files. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_FILES_END: Ends the processing of files. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_TEXT: Processes a text segment in a specified file.

_BASIC_OUT_CHAR: Processes a special character in a specified file.

_BASIC_OUT_END_LINE: Processes a CRLF in a specified file.

_BASIC_OUT_READ_SEGMENT: Utility — Reads a text segment or special character.

_BASIC_OUT_BASIC_READ: Utility — Basic Read for text segment, special character, or CRLF. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_FILE_LINE_END: Utility — Find the next CRLF in the file.

_BASIC_OUT_ERROR_INITIAL: Utility — Initial Error Management System file.

_BASIC_OUT_ERROR_RECORD: Utility — Record Error, COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_ERROR_END_FILE: Utility — Record Unexpected End of File. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_ERROR_READ_OK: Utility — Permission to read a line. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_GET_NO_ERRORS: Return the number of error entries.

_BASIC_OUT_GET_ERROR_TYPE: Return the error type associated  with a error number.

_BASIC_OUT_GET_ERROR_LINE_NO: Return the line number associated with a error number.

_BASIC_OUT_GET_ERROR_PREP_NO: Return the preparation number associated with a error number.

_BASIC_OUT_TEST_NO_ERRORS: Verify the number of error entries.

_BASIC_OUT_TEST_ERROR_TYPE: Verify the error type associated with a error number.

_BASIC_OUT_TEST_ERROR_LINE_NO: Verify the line number associated with a error number.

_BASIC_OUT_TEST_ERROR_PREP_NO: Verify the preparation number associated with a error number.

_BASIC_OUT_WRITE_REPORT: UTILITY — Record a certification error. COMPLETELY TESTED.

_BASIC_OUT_VERIFY_ALIAS: UTILITY — Verify Postal Alias .

STATUS: The testing of the capability to start testing at a specified line has been started.  When the starting line read and the starting line to be generated are the same, the process appears to be functional. The implementation of this feature was found to be inadequate when the starting line read read and the starting line generated are not same.

DETAIL: Each file may need a different number of lines to be read before testing begins.

NEXT TASK: The number of lines to be read before testing begins will be specified for each file in the _BASIC_OUT_ADD_FILE, not the _BASIC_OUT_CONSTRUCT module.  The necessary modifications will be made.
