Developing a Website using a software parts library

September 1, 2014

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: 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.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

April 16, 2013

It is planned to upgrade the Programmable Software Development
Environment to include the capability of reading the paste-in text
files where the each paragraph is one very long line.  You may need to
download the latest version of the Programmable Software Development
Environment to fully understand my reports.

The ability to read the paste-in text file is needed to certify that
the file has not been changed, was developed using the agree-upon
standard libraries, or has not been illegally copied.

STATUS: I believe that only two commands are required: _READ_SEGMENT
for reading a segment and _WRITE_SEGMENT for writing a segment.

DETAIL: All of the lines being written by the _WRITE_SEGMENT command
need to be properly completed by the required 0x0a byte before the
completion of a the associated source sub-task. If this is not
accomplished, an error should occur and the associated file should be
deleted.

NEXT TASK: The current read buffer commands, _READ_BUFFER, _GET_BUFFER,
and _END_BUFFER, will be deleted from the Programmable Software
Development Environment starting with precmac.cpp file. The write
buffer commands will be left in the program until the existing software
parts libraries have been updated.
