WORKSPACE PREPARATION PROJECT

The library defining this project has been prepared. All syntax errors in

the associated parts have been corrected. Functional tests will be performed

next.

EXPLRPDE PUBLICATION

A major problem associated with the publication of an explrpde that
functions on the Windows, Linux and Apple machine has been solved.

Recently, on a backup Windows Machine, the Norton Security program
declared the explrpde a dangerous program and removed it.

This program has been developed a long time ago using Watcom C, C++
an obsolete development program; hence, no surprise.

This problem was solved by using a Windows based gcc compiler
(MinGW—W64-i686-7.3.0-posix-dwarf). This development system
can be downloaded free-of-charge.

Significant revisions to the Website and the Manual will be required.

RELATIVITY BOOK

“SECTION 5 – A NEW DISCOVERY?”: Was reviewed. Minor modifications
were needed. The first example looked ok. The second example may
need pictures, The next step will be to review the second example pictures
in the associated Toastmasters speech

TOASTMASTERS—RELATIVITY

SPEECH 7B (“SECTION 5 – A NEW DISCOVERY?”) Was reviewed. The
pictures were good enough for presentation. The next step will be to convert
the second example pictures for inserting them into the book.

EXPLRPDE PUBLISH PLAN

The overall objective is to prepare the command line program
for downloading a Win32, Linux and Apple version of the explpde
programming tool. The Linux section is now completely prepared.
The next task is to check, modify the windows section.

WORKSPACE PREPARATION PROJECT

The preparation of the “PREP_LIBRARY_WRITE_LIBRARY”
and the modification of the “PREP_LIBRARY_TAB_REMOVAL”
and “PREP_LIBRARY_TAB_WRITE” software parts have been
accomplished. The next task is to prepare a Library Preparation
Utility.

WORKSPACE PREPARATION PROJECT

The preparation of the “PREP_LIBRARY_BASIC_LIBRARY”
for building the basic library (one without any includes) has begun.

CLASS DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

The class common structure libraries has been developed and tested. It is
now ready for use. The next class related library project will be directed
to the variables used in a routine. A new variable project will begin.

MACHINE PORTABILITY

The biggest problem with portability between the Linux, Microsoft and Apple
machine is the size of the tab character. Specifically, the size of the tab character
in the text editor in the Apple machine is 8-characters and is not resettable.
In the Windows and Linux machine where I am using the Notepad++ editor,
the tab character can be reset and is currently set at two. Today, I have found
isome equivalent text editors for the Apple machine which I can download
free of charge. This, obviously, is the next step in the machine portability efforts.

MACHINE PORTABILITY

I downloaded an Apple “equivalent” to the Notepad+++ editor. It did not have
ability to change the size of the tab character. The best current solution to the
tab character size problem is to set the tab size of the Windows and Linux editors
at eight characters. I have also developed a softwarepartslibrary for replacing tab
characters with the equivalent number of blank characters.

The Linux prepare_include library has been successfully developed for producing a
include file associated with a software parts file. The next step is to export
this library to the Windows and Apple machine. This is the first step
in preparing the project for making the prepareworkspace library.

Common Class Routine Libraries

The basiccommonclassstructlibrary has been successfully installed on
the linux machine

Common Class Routine Libraries

An effort to install the basiccommonstructclasslibrary into the Apple machine
was attempted without success. Most of the problem was the many
workspace files needed to make the installation. A library, basiclibrary,
tabremoval, include process defining files. The differences in the
tab size created much of the problem. It is now time to build the
library that makes all of these files from a single file. This project
has been considered from some time. The preparation of the
prepareworkspace library will begin.

Common Class Routine Libraries

I began developing the software parts for the commonclassroutine library.
The need for a _BASIC_STRUCT_ALIAS_EXITS routine for
verifying the uniqueness of the Routine Name occurred.

Common Class Struct Library

A _BASIC_STRUCT_ALIAS_EXISTS software part was added to the commonclassstruct
library and thoroughly tested.

Common Class Struct Library

The include file and basiccommonclassstruct library have been prepared. It will be
tested when this library is used to test the commonclassroutine library

successfully prepared and tested. Strict Portability between my linux, windows,
and apple machines has been achieved.

A make file for the gcc version of the windows explrpde has been successfully
developed. The correction of expected errors will now begin. This will be
done using the gcc version of the windos stndpcg program.

RELATIVITY BOOK / TOASTMASTERS

I have been using Toastmasters as an experimental laboratory for developing
my book. The evaluation of my last speech suggested a significant update
to make my “speed of light” discovery more understandable. Today, I
discovered a possible understandable example, namely a traffic signal.
I have started developing the associated presentation.

COMMON CLASS LIBRARIES

The minor modifications of to the CommonClassStruct have been
implemented and certification test have been restarted.
