RELATIVITY / TOASTMASTERS

The fourth speech inwhich I plan to read a section of the
book has been prepared. In this speech, I have reached the
moment of discovery. A lot of errors and improvements can
be found by reading the book out-loud.

EXPLRPDE UPGRADE

The necessary modifications to the typedef.mac and
define.mac needed to implement the time command processing
routines have been tentatively made.

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

2017-09-13

Additional modifications are needed. Specifically, the
element specification must be unique for each array. This
modification will be made and functionally tested.
issues and errors have been found. All but one have been
tentatively corrected.

ARRAY SOFTWARE PARTS LIBRARY

Additional modifications are needed. Specifically, the
element specification must be unique for each array. This
modification will be made and functionally tested.

EXPLRPDE UPGRADE

A command set for reading the clock / file data-time
and getting the integer time, year, month, day, hour, minute
and second for subsequent processing has been defined.

ARRAY SOFTWARE PARTS LIBRARY

The loading commands have been functionally tested. Problems
with closing the typedef software parts library have been
encountered. Correcting these problems is the next step.

ARRAY SOFTWARE PARTS LIBRARY

Problems with closing the typedef software parts library have been
corrected and functional testing of the Array software parts library
has been started.

APPLE IMACS COMPUTER

I continue to develop the MAK file software parts library
using my existing LINUX explrpde tool. The following
software parts have been modified for integration purposes:

_MAKE_FILE_HEADER_LOAD
_MAKE_FILE_SOURCE_BEGIN
_MAKE_FILE_SOURCE_NEXT
_MAKE_FILE_SOURCE_CALLED

APPLE IMACS COMPUTER

I continue to develop the MAK file software parts library
using my existing LINUX explrpde tool. The integration
modification process has been completed for the following
software parts:

_MAKE_FILE_HEADER_LOAD
_MAKE_FILE_SOURCE_BEGIN
_MAKE_FILE_SOURCE_NEXT
_MAKE_FILE_SOURCE_CALLED
_MAKE_FILE_SOURCE_CALL_END

Preparation of the following utility was needed:

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

June 21, 2016

MONDAY: 2016/06/20

STATUS: The Programmable Software Development Environment has many needs for improvement. One of these is a help display that is easily accessed during a check-out / testing processed.

DETAIL: Mr. Mike has complained about the ease of accessing the appropriate chapter in the manual during a checkout process. The appropriate help message should be accessable from the debug menu.

NEXT TASK: A new project associated with Mr. Mikes request will be started.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

May 9, 2016

MONDAY: 2016/05/09

STATUS: The Programmable Software Development Environment Downloadable
files have been inspected and found to be uploaded to my sites

DETAIL: The examples have been corrected along with the LINUX
Programmable Software Development Environment. Relative to the LINUX
version, you can use the ‘./’ in your file specifications to eliminate
the need to specify your home directory. Please look at your examples
for details. Using the ‘./’ to specify other directories may result in
an user error statement indicating that your executable could not be
found.

RESULTS: This specific task has been completed.

FRIDAY 2016/04/15

STATUS: I have upgraded the error statements Programmable Software Development Environment to be more clear relative to the use of the “./” which was the primary reason for Mr. Mike’s problems with the example programs. Also, significant errors in the example programs were found and corrected.

DETAIL: The sample programs were developed a long time ago. During the time between their development and the time that Mr. Mike attempted to use them, the folders containing these files had been changed.

NEXT TASK: My next task will be prepare a new set of downloadable files.

SUNDAY: 2016/03/06

STATUS: The cause of the Programmable Software Development Environment system error reported by Mr. Mike has been identified.

DETAIL: Mr. Mike was attempting to use one my published LINUX examples. Along time ago, these examples worked properly. These examples have not been executed for a long period of time.

RESULTS: In the example, there were errors in the specification of the Folders containing the example. Apparently, some temporary files are created in the same folder as the *.cmk example project file prior to it being opened.

NEXT TASK: My next task will be to make the changes to the Programmable Software Development Environment needed to open the *.cmk file before any temporary files are created. Also, the associated error messages will be upgraded.

TUESDAY: 2016/03/01

STATUS: Mr. Mike, while trying to use the Programmable Software
Development Environment for the first time on one of my published LINUX
examples encountered an unexpected system error.

DETAIL: Along time ago, these examples worked properly. These examples
have not been executed for a long period of time.

RESULTS: I ran the Programmable Software Development Environment on the
same example and encountered the same error.

NEXT TASK: My next task will be to find the cause of this error. This
effort must precede my effort to use Cygwin project to make a Windows
version of the Programmable Software Development Environment.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

February 26, 2016

FRIDAY 2016/02/26

STATUS: I have found a possible open-source Windows C++ development system, the Cygwin project which I have downloaded.

DETAIL: Mr. Mike, a long time professional friend, informed me about the Cygwin open-source project. This system provides a large collection of GNU and Open Source tools which provide functionality similar to a Linux distribution on Windows. In particular, I need a Win32 equivalent to the Linux gcc compiler.

RESULTS: A Windows equivalent to gcc has been founded in the downloaded package and appears to be functional.

NEXT TASK: My next task will be to build the Programmable Software Development Environment using this technology.

FRIDAY 2016/02/19

STATUS: It has been quite a while since I have explored the
improvement needs of the Programmable Software Development Environment.
Since that time, other challenges have occurred.

RESULTS: The Linux and Windows version produces identical data except
that the the Windows version is much slower.

NEXT TASK: My next task will re-examine the possible open-source C++
development systems.
