MACHINE PORTABILITY

The biggest problem with portability between the Linux, Microsoft and Apple
machine is the size of the tab character. Specifically, the size of the tab character
in the text editor in the Apple machine is 8-characters and is not resettable.
In the Windows and Linux machine where I am using the Notepad++ editor,
the tab character can be reset and is currently set at two. Today, I have found
isome equivalent text editors for the Apple machine which I can download
free of charge. This, obviously, is the next step in the machine portability efforts.

MACHINE PORTABILITY

I downloaded an Apple “equivalent” to the Notepad+++ editor. It did not have
ability to change the size of the tab character. The best current solution to the
tab character size problem is to set the tab size of the Windows and Linux editors
at eight characters. I have also developed a softwarepartslibrary for replacing tab
characters with the equivalent number of blank characters.

Common Class Routine Libraries

The basiccommonclassstructlibrary has been successfully installed on
the linux machine

Common Class Routine Libraries

An effort to install the basiccommonstructclasslibrary into the Apple machine
was attempted without success. Most of the problem was the many
workspace files needed to make the installation. A library, basiclibrary,
tabremoval, include process defining files. The differences in the
tab size created much of the problem. It is now time to build the
library that makes all of these files from a single file. This project
has been considered from some time. The preparation of the
prepareworkspace library will begin.

Common Class Routine Libraries

I began developing the software parts for the commonclassroutine library.
The need for a _BASIC_STRUCT_ALIAS_EXITS routine for
verifying the uniqueness of the Routine Name occurred.

Common Class Struct Library

A _BASIC_STRUCT_ALIAS_EXISTS software part was added to the commonclassstruct
library and thoroughly tested.

2018-07-24

Common Class Struct Library

The include file and basiccommonclassstruct library have been prepared. It will be
tested when this library is used to test the commonclassroutine library

PORTABILITY PROJECT

The gcc version of the windows stndpcg and explrpde programs have been
successfully prepared and tested. Strict Portability between my linux, windows,
and apple machines has been achieved.

COMMON CLASS LIBRARIES

The certification tests of the CommonClassStruct has been completed.
The selection of the next development task must now be determined.

PORTABILITY PROJECT

A make file for the gcc version of the windows explrpde has been successfully
developed. The correction of expected errors will now begin. This will be
done using the gcc version of the windos stndpcg program.

RELATIVITY BOOK / TOASTMASTERS

I have been using Toastmasters as an experimental laboratory for developing
my book. The evaluation of my last speech suggested a significant update
to make my “speed of light” discovery more understandable. Today, I
discovered a possible understandable example, namely a traffic signal.
I have started developing the associated presentation.

COMMON CLASS LIBRARIES

The minor modifications of to the CommonClassStruct have been
implemented and certification test have been restarted.

COMMON CLASS STRUCT LIBRARY

The functional tests of the CommonClassStruct library have been successfully
completed. The certification tests which include error detection will now be
started.

2018/05/29

COMMON CLASS LIBRARIES

A common problem throughout all of the commonclass libraries is the enforcement
of unique alias names. For example, a typedef alias name cannot subsequently used
to define a structure. A unique enforcement technique is to add additional descriptive
characters. For example the typedef name “name” would be in reality name_typedef.
This enforcement technique will be implemented. The certification tests for the
CommonClassStruct will be delayed until these modifications are completed.

MAKE FILE GENERATOR

A prototype STNDPCG make file has been successfully prepared and installed
in the Linux machine. Errors have been reported that may either require revisions
in either the make file or one or more source files.

COMMON CLASS LIBRARY DEVELOPMENT

In an attempt to test the functionality of the classcommonstruct, problems in
its definition have been detected. The classcommontypedef, classcommonelement,
classcommonarray, and the classcommonstruct libraries must be divided into read
land load libraries.

CLASS DEVELOPMENT

The classcommontypedef library has been successfully exported to
the apple machine. Its test file has been simplified with an utility
software part. An additional test to certify proper behavior for an
empty read sequence.

RELATIVITY BOOK/TOASTMASTER SPEECH

My Toastmaster Mentor and I both agree that my “RULES OF PHYSICS”
is has a conference/class room format and needs to be revised to be
more interesting and understandable. The revision process has been
started.
