Can Programming Be Strictly Portable Relative To Language?

July 27, 2015

The activity associated with development of strictly portable methods
of software development will be presented here. Included in this
Portability effort will be Windows based C, C++, C#, and Visual Basic;
and Linux based C and C++.

MONDAY: 2015/07/27

STATUS: This project has been restarted by preparing a common program
output library.

DETAIL: This common output library will be capable of 1) making a
comment line, indenting a program line, and making lines of any length.

RESULTS: The Certification process has been prepared and the Setup has
been started,

NEXT TASK: The Indentation Variable has been defined. Incrementing and
Decrementing a specific Indentation is next

Can Programming Be Strictly Portable Relative To Language?

June 12, 2015

The activity associated with development of strictly portable methods of software development will be presented here. Included in this Portability effort will be Windows based C, C++, C#, and Visual Basic; and Linux based C and C++.

FRIDAY: 2015/06/12

STATUS: This development effort has been backlogged for several years.

RESULTS: The basic output library developed for document and web-site development is a good starting point for this project. This library has the capability of certifying that the output source code has been developed exclusively with the approved software libraries and has not been modified by any patches.

NEXT TASK: I will restart this project by preparing output libraries for C, C++, Visual Basic, and C##. A common set of a commands will be defined first.

Developing a Website using a software parts library

May 15, 2015

The activity associated with development of a software parts library for the development of a web-site will be presented here. This will be an extension of the library used to prepare Programmable Software Development Environment manual.

This effort was started a long time ago following the development of the manual software parts library. Its purpose was to eliminate the need for Front Page. It was subsequently put on hold so that other more important efforts could proceed.

Mr. Mike is a long time professional friend of mine who has recently offered to reconstruct my Web-Site. I told him my plan to use my tool to rebuild my site. He has had difficulties relating to my technology (It is quite different than normal programming methods) and I am not really skilled in Web-site design. We both felt that this might a great opportunity to make the technical connection.

STATUS: The CSS Software Parts for the headers have been tentatively selected.

DETAIL: The following five parts are being considered: _WEBSITE_HEADER_SIZE (Relative Font Siz), _WEBSITE_HEADER_COLOR (Font Color), _WEBSITE_HEADER_LEFT (Left Aligned Text), _WEBSITE_HEADER_CENTER (Center Aligned Text) and _WEBSITE_HEADER_RIGHT (Right Aligned Text). Each Header will be assigned an unique group.

MY NEXT TASK: My next task will be to start developing the Header Software Parts Library. Again, a common library will be used for both the CSS and HTML development tasks.

SATURDAY: 2015/01/24

STATUS: The CSS output software parts has been modified and is ready
for test.

DETAIL: The use of the script library has been eliminated. Some minor
modifications of the CSS Software parts library will be required.

NEXT TASK: The next task will be to make the needed modifications to
the CSS Output software test task. Once this is done, the CSS Output
Library can be properly tested and made ready for use.

STATUS: Again as always, a battle-plan becomes obsolete with the firing of the first shot. The running of the CSS development task is quite slow; too slow to do a comprehensive test sequence with the test task.

DETAIL: As was reported earlier, I determined the primary reason for the slow speed was the use of the script system to reorder the preparation of the CSS files. I also determined that I was not using the scripts optimally. I made the modifications needed to improve its efficiency and now the development speed of the CSS files, although still slow, is acceptable. It will not be acceptable for a comprehensive test program in which all of the possible error conditions are properly tested.

RESULTS: The only easy way that I know to solve this process is to convert CSS Software parts library containing a large collection of software parts to a collection of small software parts libraries, each of which performs a limited function that can be quickly tested.

NEXT TASK: My first small software parts library that I plan to prepare will define and write the font families. You will recall that I recently made an improvement in this sub-function. A few more minor modifications and this sub-function will become a standalone library that will be accessed by the CSS Software parts library and comprehensively testable.

STATUS: The development and functional tests of the Horizontal Group section parts have been completed.

DETAIL: Four software parts were developed: 1) _WEBSITE_HTML_LEFT_BEGIN, 2) _WEBSITE_HTML_LEFT_END, 3) _WEBSITE_HTML_RIGHT_BEGIN, and 4) _WEBSITE_HTML_RIGHT_END. Functional tests were performed for all combinations of the Print/NoPrint states.

NEXT TASK: The following three sets of software parts are needed to complete this project: 1) Headers, 2) Text Lines and paragraphs, and 3) Table of contents. I will be examining the Header software parts requirement next

STATUS: The development and preliminary tests of the Horizontal Group section parts have been completed.

MR_MIKE_CONTRIBUTION:

DETAIL: Four software parts were developed: 1) _WEBSITE_STYLE_HORIZ_LEFT 2) _WEBSITE_STYLE_HORIZ_WIDTH , 3) _WEBSITE_STYLE_HORIZ_RIGHT, and 4) _WEBSITE_STYLE_HORIZ_END. Preliminary test were performed for all combinations of the Print/NoPrint states.

RESULTS: The CSS Files have been examined and appear to be correct. The actual behavior of these files can only be verified with the corresponding HTML files.

MY NEXT TASK: My next task will be to start preparing the associated HTML software parts.

WEDNESDAY: 2014/09/10

STATUS: The preparation of the Horizontal Group section CSS capability has been begun.

DETAIL: The Print/No Print software parts required major modifications. Specifically, 1) the capability of setting a Print/No Print state for more than one Section at a time, 2) communicating data from an earlier specification to a later specification, and 3) writing a Print File line for a NoPrint state are required.

RESULTS: The required modifications of Print/No Print software parts have been made. The modifications have been function tested with the existing WholePage and vertical Group section parts.

MY NEXT TASK: The development of the Horizontal Group section parts will be started.

MONDAY: 2014/09/01

STATUS: I started my horizontal group section CSS software parts
development process by making a plan.

DETAIL: I examined the existing group section software parts to find a
starting point. I was hoping that the new capability could be made
with a minor update of the original group section parts. Of particular
importance was the Print/No Print feature. Specifically, the Print/No
Print specification for either horizontal section group affects the CSS
code generated for the other one.

RESULTS: Three new software parts are needed: 1)
_WEBSITE_STYLE_HORIZ_GROUP_LEFT 2) _WEBSITE_STYLE_HORIZ_GROUP_CONT
(Interface between the Left and Right Group section), and
_WEBSITE_STYLE_HORIZ_GROUP_RIGHT. The existing software part
_WEBSITE_STYLE_GROUP_END can be modified to terminate the Horizontal
group section sequence.

MY NEXT TASK: My next task will be to start the preparation process.
