Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

May 28, 2014

The overall purpose of the current Programmable Software Development
Environment upgrade process is to certify that a product generated is
certifiably releasable.

To certify a software parts library, every command except the _ERROR
command defining a library must respond to a ‘<—‘ debug flag comment
at the end of a the command line. Specifically, when the debug flag is
present, the subject command will be executed first and then the
command data (command, arguments, and results) will be displayed and
then the operator will be given a option of terminated execution or
continuing.

The _ERROR command must be corrected to equivalently respond to the
debug flag.

The major difference between the _ERROR command and all other commands
is that the debug flag will be processed before the command is executed.

The Programmable Software Development Environment will be modified so
that the _ERROR command will respond to the debug flag before
terminating execution.

TUESDAY: 2014/05/27

STATUS: The manual description of the ERROR RESOURCE has been modified.

NEXT TASK: The manual description of the _STATE_ERROR Command needs to
be modified.

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

December 26, 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.

Currently, the Programmable Software Development Environment has the capability of reading a standard ASCII text file where the TAB character is replaced with a suitable number of blanks. Each line of the text file cannot be longer than 256 characters. On the other hand, the Programmable Software Development Environment has the capability of writing a paste-in text file where each paragraph is one very long line. This capability includes the ability to include special characters such the TAB.

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.

THURSDAY: 2013/12/26

STATUS: I have completed the re-documentation process of the INPUT FILES software parts commands.

NEXT TASK: The next step will be to make a final proof of the updated manual pages, Once this is done, the updated Programmable Software Development Environment will be prepared for uploading to my website and my CodePlex account.

STATUS: The manual page associated with the _TEXT_BASE_NAME (not the
_TEXT_PATH as originally planned) has been updated.

NEXT TASK: The next task will be to update the _TEXT_PATH manual page.
There are two more pages to update.

MONDAY: 2013/12/09

STATUS: The corrected Programmable Software Development Environment appears to be functioning.  I could publish it now.  However, the manual pages associated with the original upgrade of the Input File Commands is a very poor presentation.  Therefore, I have restarted the associate manual modification effort which I had put on hold.

DETAIL: I have already have re-documented the _TEXT_EXTENT command

NEXT TASK: The next task will be to update the _STATE_READ_TEXT manual page.

MONDAY: 2013/08/26

STATUS: The manual pages associated with the _SOURCE_NAME and
_READ_TEXT of the INPUT_FILE Command Sub-Section have been updated the
new, non Front Page format.

NEXT TASK: The next task will be to update the _STATE_READ_TEXT manual
page.
