MACHINE PORTABILITY

The biggest problem with portability between the Linux, Microsoft and Apple
machine is the size of the tab character. Specifically, the size of the tab character
in the text editor in the Apple machine is 8-characters and is not resettable.
In the Windows and Linux machine where I am using the Notepad++ editor,
the tab character can be reset and is currently set at two. Today, I have found
isome equivalent text editors for the Apple machine which I can download
free of charge. This, obviously, is the next step in the machine portability efforts.

MACHINE PORTABILITY

I downloaded an Apple “equivalent” to the Notepad+++ editor. It did not have
ability to change the size of the tab character. The best current solution to the
tab character size problem is to set the tab size of the Windows and Linux editors
at eight characters. I have also developed a softwarepartslibrary for replacing tab
characters with the equivalent number of blank characters.

Common Class Routine Libraries

An effort to install the basiccommonstructclasslibrary into the Apple machine
was attempted without success. Most of the problem was the many
workspace files needed to make the installation. A library, basiclibrary,
tabremoval, include process defining files. The differences in the
tab size created much of the problem. It is now time to build the
library that makes all of these files from a single file. This project
has been considered from some time. The preparation of the
prepareworkspace library will begin.

CLASS DEVELOPMENT – COMMON ARRAY CLASS

The Common Array class needs to be extensively redesigned so that can
be used in the Common Struct class to not only make arrays of elements and
other arrays but also arrays of structures.
