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_CALL_END

Preparation of the following utility was needed:

_MAKE_FILE_LOAD_CALL_HEADER

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.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

March 2, 2016

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.

February 20, 2016

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.

Open Source Software Development Tool Error

November 14, 2015

An Programmable Software Development Environment system error has been discovered,

The WIN32 error message is as follows:

PCG ERROR: precoper — 845
PCG ERROR: precsrce — 597
PCG ERROR: srcproj — 2300
PCG ERROR: devproj — 1713
PCG ERROR: mainprj — 1461
PCG ERROR: explrpde — 153

The LINUX error message is as follows:

PCG ERROR: precoper — 864
PCG ERROR: precsrce — 616
PCG ERROR: srcproj — 2319
PCG ERROR: devproj — 1733
PCG ERROR: mainprj — 1480
PCG ERROR: explrpde — 172

FRIDAY 2015/11/13

STATUS: The the new Linux and Windows versions of the Programmable Software Development Environment has been uploaded to my web-site and Codeplex Project and is now available for use.

NEXT TASK: This project is complete.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

October 1, 2015

WEDNESDAY: 2015/09/31

STATUS: A few days ago, I lost my research flash drive for a few days.

DETAIL: My research flash drive is my means of performing my activities at remote sites. It contains my Open Office spreadsheet accounting data that could have created a problem for me if it got in the wrong hands. Fortunately, this did not happen.

RESULTS: It was obvious that a cryptographically secure replacement for the Open-Office spreadsheet accounting program was needed.

NEXT TASK: My first task will be to examine the Programmable Software Development Environment to determine what additional instructions will be needed.
