RELATIVITY BOOK

The second section of the book is being tested and corrected
by preparing it for a reading at a Toastmasters meeting.

APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

A second attempt at preparing a working MAK for my protability
tool will be made. The nano editor, designed for use in the
terminal, will be used as the interface between the make file
generated in a Linux machine and one suitably formatted for
the IMACs machine.

IMACS PORTABILITY PROGRAMMING

At this moment, the current gcc program has successfully
compiled the source files of the explrpde software
development tool but has not linked the object files.
Today, I found a website which helped me verify that
the correct version of gcc has been installed successfully
on my IMACS computer.

The Apple Version of the Microsoft Visual Studio was successfully
installed but unfortunately was found unusable for the current
needs. It supported C# but not C++ which I need for the near-
term installation.

A comment was made that the “Rules Of Physics” was a bit
difficult to read due its technology. This comment will
be seriously considered during the update of this section
which is the next task.

APPLE PROJECT

The make file statement order was changed (Link statement is now written first and the compile statements second) and tested. No change in the error statement occurred. Either
the specific statement has an unknown problem or the order of the compile statements also needs to be changed.

During the process of assembling the source section of the test
project, it was found that there is an unavoidable need for
optional header file specification instructions for each
subroutine. I knew that it was possible but hoped that
it was avoidable. It is not. The next task will be to prepare
this software part instruction.
