Life of A Programmer — Session 8.2 — Tools Help Make The Software Engineer

June 27, 2017

The Tool, if it is to be compliant of the principles of ISO-9001 must be capable of:

1.0 Developing a system of Standard Methods.

2.0 Exclusively using these Standard Methods in the development of product.

3.0 Testing all work-products from the Standard Methods all the way to the Product.

An experimental beta development system that satisfies these requirements is available on my web-site, http://www.whatifwe.com

I have developed both a Linux and Windows Open Source version.

They can be downloaded free-of-charge.

The download has a fairly decent manual.

Life of A Programmer — Session 8 — Tools Help Make The Software Engineer

With the right development program, you can develop Error
Free Software.

There are some historical examples of this truth.

In the early 1960’s, Fortran was a major computing languages.

The Fortran compiler had a never ending bug list.

PL/1, the next major language, was far more reliable.

I used it at Lockheed for over five years and never encountered
any errors.

PL/I was designed in strict compliance with the principles of
simple precedence.
