Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

March 17, 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: 2013/03/17

STATUS: The necessary modifications to the PROCESS_FILE structure
associated with the buffer have been made and successfully tested in
both WIN32 and LINUX.

NEXT TASK: The necessary modifications to the PROCESS_DATA structure
associated with the buffer will be made next.

Can Programming Be Strictly Portable Relative To Language?

March 5, 2013

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++.

TUESDAY: 2013/03/05

STATUS: The software parts of the common source output library for
defining the formats have been prepared.

DETAIL: These software parts use a script to prepare the format
scripts. The format scripts will be run to write / certify the output
files.

NEXT TASK: The software parts of the common source output library that
write / certify the output file according to a specified format will be
prepared next.

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++.

SATURDAY: 2013/03/02

STATUS: The most important characteristic of this software parts
library is its ability to write/certify an output using previously
defined formats. This will, of course, be used in the preparations of
source code files. The preparation of source code files will not be its
only use.

NEXT TASK:   The library and macro names will be renamed appropriately
to reflect its more general application.  Its development will continue
to be reported in this post.

THURSDAY: 2013/02/21

STATUS: Each format will be represented by a script which can either be
executed from a _RUN_SCRIPT command or called from another script.

DETAIL: One of the format statement requirements will be the ability of
specifying columns.

NEXT TASK: The software parts which associate a column with a specific
column name will be defined next. These names can be used in the
definition of a format statement.
