APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

The errors in the explrpde have been corrected. It has been
successfully used for several projects. It will be tested by
using it for several weeks before I attempt to publish it on
my website.

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

There are problems with the standard number of blanks representing
the tab character and the number used in the explrpde projects.
None of the currently available Apple text editors have the ability
to specify the relation between the number of blanks and the tab
character. Furthermore, I was not able to find an appropriate text
editor in the Apple store.

**************************************************************

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

The explrpde routinely replaces the tab character with a specified
number of blanks before writing text. The development of a
software parts library for converting an input file with tab
characters to a file without tab characters has been started.

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

The stndpcg application is the original program development tool that
is used to develop the current program development tool, explrpde. In this
program, I used the fcloseall routine to insure that the output files would
be properly updated under an error condition. I will eventually need
to fix this; however it is not needed today. I removed the statement and
got a successful run of the make file. An executable has been successfully
created. It will now be used to rebuild the current development tool.

The Apple version of the stndpcg application has been used to
successfully build explrpde source code.

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

The gcc compiler has detected five errors have been detected in the
precfile source file. The five errors appear to be associated with
differences between the linux and apple versions of the gcc compiler
system.

ARRAY SOFTWARE PARTS LIBRARY

The names, float, and typedef software parts libraries have been
completely tested. Release versions are now available on both a Windows
and Linux machine.

2017-09-26

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

The iMACS machine has been successfully repaired (hard drive replaced).
Gcc has been successfully downloaded and has been used for the first
time. An error has been found in the precfile routine. This error
is caused by differences in the Linux system utilities and the Apple
utilities, namely fcloseall does not appear to be in the Apple utilities.

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

The stndpcg application is the original program development tool that
is used to develop the current program development tool explrpde. It was
coded by hand in CPP. I thought that it might be easier to develop an
Apple version of the stndpcg and then use it to modify the explrpde.
A make file has been prepared and the missing fcloseall error has
been detected.

ARRAY SOFTWARE PARTS LIBRARY

The requirement that every name must be unique has been
successfully implemented in the basic array software
parts library. The development of the structure software
parts library will be started. Individual variables will
be included.

RELATIVITY / TOASTMASTERS

A significate upgrade to the Prague section has been made
both in the fourth speech as well as the actual book. The
speech will be read out-loud again.

moment of discovery. A lot of errors and improvements can
be found by reading the book out-loud.

define.mac needed to implement the time command processing
routines have been tentatively made.

Additional modifications are needed. Specifically, the
element specification must be unique for each array. This

issues and errors have been found. All but one have been
tentatively corrected.

and second for subsequent processing has been defined.

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

It occurred to me that use of a flash drive to transfer the
make file from the Linux machine where it was generated
to the apple machine might have file inconsistency problems.
A better method might be to transfer a *.zip file containing
the make file. I tried it and it seemed to behave better.
Unfortunately, it did not solve the link problem.

by preparing it for a reading at a Toastmasters meeting.

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

A second attempt at preparing a working MAK for my protability
tool will be made. The nano editor, designed for use in the
terminal, will be used as the interface between the make file
generated in a Linux machine and one suitably formatted for
the IMACs machine.
