Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

June 30, 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.

SUNDAY: 2013/06/30

STATUS: The development/modifications of the software parts associated
with basic output library continues.  I briefly reexamined the need to
add a read segment command to find the next CRLF.

DETAIL: To properly perform the desired certification function, we must
read and compare all of the lines in the subject file.  We cannot
error-out when we find the first discrepancy.  In as much as many
segments will be read before the CRLF, we must be able to find the CRLF
command in a line with a reported discrepancy.

RESULTS: I was able to prepare a general-purpose read-segment utility
capable of finding the next CRLF. There is no current need to develop
an additional command.

NEXT TASK: I will continue to develop/modify the software parts
associated with basic output library. When completed, I will use the
testing of this library as a means of testing the new Programmable
Software Development Environment version.
