APPLE PROJECT

I probably have found the error in the MAKE file preventing
the linking of the object files into an executable. It appears
that the Apple process requires specifying the system library
in the link command whereas the Linux version did not. I
have found a library that appears to be associated with the
gcc command and plan to make the needed modifications to
to the make file software parts library.

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

2017/06/10

APPLE PROJECT

The modifications of the make file software parts library
to permit library files to be included in the linkage
command have been started.

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

APPLE PROJECT

The modifications of the make file software parts library
to permit library files to be included in the linkage
command have been completed and are ready for test.

RELATIVITY BOOK

Based on the recommendations of my Toastmaster Mentor,
I have begun to modify the Introduction. Two pages will
be involved, the first of which will introduce the subject.
A rough draft text version of the first page has been prepared.

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

RELATIVITY BOOK

A rough draft version of the text second page of the introduction
has been prepared.

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

RELATIVITY BOOK

The rough draft versions of the introduction (2-pages) have
been pasted into an Open Office document. Only one Open source
page was required. The next task will be to review the
Open Source Introduction and make the necessary corrections.

APPLE PROJECT

The order of the compile statements were reversed and several
Make file generation errors were found. One was a name error
which was corrected immediately. The other which places the
wrong file extent (*.cpp instead of *.h) for the called
routines will be corrected next.

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

2017/05/13

RELATIVITY BOOK

The detailed presentation of the first Rule of Physics has
been prepared. The required increase of the strength
of presentation was accomplished by restructuring the
paragraphs and choosing a proper title.

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

2017/05/14

APPLE PROJECT

The extent error has been corrected. The revised make file
will be tested next.

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

2017/05/15

APPLE PROJECT

The tests on the revised make file failed. The problem is
with a specific header file and re-arranging the header
file list to exactly duplicate the current Linux make
file did not solve the problem. A Careful examination of
the specific file and a search for An Apple make file manual
are needed.

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

2017/05/16

APPLE PROJECT

The prehost.h was removed from the header list of the make file.
The make file now functioned properly with a number of object
files being generated. An error was encountered in the compilation
of the precfile source was being compiled; specifically the
system routine fcloseall was not recognized.

RELATIVITY BOOK

A comment was made that the “Rules Of Physics” was a bit
difficult to read due its technology. This comment will
be seriously considered during the update of this section
which is the next task.

APPLE PROJECT

The make file statement order was changed (Link statement is now written first and the compile statements second) and tested. No change in the error statement occurred. Either
the specific statement has an unknown problem or the order of the compile statements also needs to be changed.
**************************************************************

2017/05/10

The “THE DISCOVERY” Section has been started and
a preliminary version of the Summary Statements

was corrected. Make and object file were found.
There are still problems in processing the header file. An attempt
to find documents that will define the gcc / apple application.
