Developing a Website using a software parts library

February 6, 2015

The activity associated with development of a software parts library
for the development of a web-site will be presented here. This will be
an extension of the library used to prepare Programmable Software
Development Environment manual.

This effort was started a long time ago following the development of
the manual software parts library. Its purpose was to eliminate the
need for Front Page. It was subsequently put on hold so that other
more important efforts could proceed.

Mr. Mike is a long time professional friend of mine who has recently
offered to reconstruct my Web-Site. I told him my plan to use my tool
to rebuild my site. He has had difficulties relating to my technology
(It is quite different than normal programming methods) and I am not
really skilled in Web-site design. We both felt that this might a great
opportunity to make the technical connection.

THURSDAY: 2015/02/05

STATUS: The modifications to CSS Software Parts needed to use the new
CSS Output Library have been made and functionally tested

RESULTS: The execution speed of the resultant CSS Library has been
greatly improved. For reasons not known at this time, the Linux version
of the Programmable Software Development Environment is much faster
than the Windows version.

MY NEXT TASK: This subtask is now completed. The backlogged tasks of
the Web-site development project will be examined and a plan will be
made.

RESULTS: The execution speed of the resultant CSS Output Library has
been greatly improved.

MY NEXT TASK: The next step is to make the needed modifications to CSS
Software Parts and make the necessary functional tests.

STATUS: The CSS output software parts has been modified and is ready
for test.

DETAIL: The use of the script library has been eliminated. Some minor
modifications of the CSS Software parts library will be required.

NEXT TASK: The next task will be to make the needed modifications to
the CSS Output software test task. Once this is done, the CSS Output
Library can be properly tested and made ready for use.

STATUS: I delayed the preliminary development of the website group
section HTML software parts library due to a CSS problem; namely, the
generation of the CSS output files took a long time.

DETAIL: The CSS Output Files are generated using the script library.
This was needed because the CSS file commands are not nested (one
contained inside another) where the HTML file commands are. To maintain
strict format similarities, both input source files have a nested
format. The script library allows me to properly format the CSS files.
Unfortunately, this slows down the output file generation.

RESULTS: I re-examined the CSS output file library and found the script
was inefficiently used. I made the obvious modifications and the speed
of the process was considerably improved.

NEXT TASK: I will restart the preliminary development of the website
group section HTML software parts library.

Development of Basic Text Write/Certification Utility Libraries

November 12, 2013

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.

TUESDAY: 2013/11/12

STATUS: This library is being used in a number of applications include
web-site development and preparation of documents in both a printable
and internet pasteable format. While preparing one of these documents,
I encountered an error that appears to be associated with the
Programmable Software Development Environment.

DETAIL: The specific error was that a $ followed by a number, s dollar
value was erroneously considered by the Programmable Software
Development Environment _WRITE_SEGMENT Command as a parameter.  This
has not happened before when I was using the_ LOAD_BUFFER and
APPEND_BUFFER commands while writing the same files.

NEXT TASK:  I will examine the _WRITE_SEGMENT command of the
Programmable Software Development Environment and report my findings in
blog associated with its update.

STATUS: The software parts of this library have been tentative found to be usable.

DETAIL: I still have functional elements that have not been tested. Specifically, there are a set of functional elements that read the error reports that are contained a set of post offices.

RESULTS: These error reporting parts are important to the preparation of certification and intellectual property compromise reports.  They are not currently needed for using this library in the generation of various source files.

NEXT TASK: Based on all available marketing data, restarting my project for developing websites by portable standard methods is the next step.  The basic output library will be integral part of this effort. This effort will be documented in Web-Site Portable Development posts. This project will be put on hold until a future time.

lines to be read before  testing begins to be optionally specified by
an additional __BASIC_OUT_ADD   parameter. These changes have been
tested and found to be functional.

DETAIL: Each file may need a different number of lines to be read
before testing begins.  In particular, it may be important to
discontinue the testing of a file when another is being corrected.
This feature has been tested.

RESULTS: I believe that this software parts library is now functional
and can be used in other applications.

NEXT TASK: The software parts of this library will be examined to see
whether any further tests are required to render the library usable.
