Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

July 22, 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.

MONDAY: 2013/07/22

STATUS: The preparation/modification of the software parts and test program associated with the basic output library have progressed sufficiently to permit the testing of the new Programmable Software Development Environment. Preliminary tests of the new Programmable Software Development Environment have revealed that WATCOM debugger is not adequate for the task.

DETAIL: Specifically, the Programmable Software Development Environment has an interface with the command line screen  where both data is displayed and keyboard commands are entered. The WATCOM debugger does not properly handle this interface.

RESULTS: This problem can be solved by building three small routines that implement the needed break points and associated data display.

NEXT TASK: The preparation and deployment of these break point routines is the next task.
