Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

The overall purpose of the current Programmable Software Development
Environment upgrade process is to certify that a product generated is
certifiably releasable.

To certify a software parts library, every command except the _ERROR
command defining a library must respond to a ‘<—‘ debug flag comment
at the end of a the command line. Specifically, when the debug flag is
present, the subject command will be executed first and then the
command data (command, arguments, and results) will be displayed and
then the operator will be given a option of terminated execution or

The _ERROR command must be corrected to equivalently respond to the
debug flag.

The major difference between the _ERROR command and all other commands
is that the debug flag will be processed before the command is executed.

The Programmable Software Development Environment will be modified so
that the _ERROR command will respond to the debug flag before
terminating execution.

STATUS: My preliminary experimental modifications of the precsrce
source file were unsuccessful and it occurred to me this morning that
my original approach was probably overkill.

DETAIL: The _ERROR command basically terminates the execution of the
development process. The one argument _ERROR statement provides the
capability of running a test project. I believe that the “<—-” is
indicative of the fact that this statement has not as yet been tested
and requires that the process should be unconditionally stopped.
Permission to continue in a test project can be granted by replacing
the “<—-” with the date.

NEXT TASK: The precsrce source files will be restored to the archival
files. The precoper source files will be then be modified to implement
the above revised _ERROR definition.
