Developing a Website using a software parts library

January 25, 2015

The activity associated with development of a software parts library
for the development of a web-site will be presented here. This will be
an extension of the library used to prepare Programmable Software
Development Environment manual.

This effort was started a long time ago following the development of
the manual software parts library. Its purpose was to eliminate the
need for Front Page. It was subsequently put on hold so that other
more important efforts could proceed.

Mr. Mike is a long time professional friend of mine who has recently
offered to reconstruct my Web-Site. I told him my plan to use my tool
to rebuild my site. He has had difficulties relating to my technology
(It is quite different than normal programming methods) and I am not
really skilled in Web-site design. We both felt that this might a great
opportunity to make the technical connection.

STATUS: The CSS output software parts has been modified and is ready
for test.

DETAIL: The use of the script library has been eliminated. Some minor
modifications of the CSS Software parts library will be required.

NEXT TASK: The next task will be to make the needed modifications to
the CSS Output software test task. Once this is done, the CSS Output
Library can be properly tested and made ready for use.

STATUS: I delayed the preliminary development of the website group
section HTML software parts library due to a CSS problem; namely, the
generation of the CSS output files took a long time.

DETAIL: The CSS Output Files are generated using the script library.
This was needed because the CSS file commands are not nested (one
contained inside another) where the HTML file commands are. To maintain
strict format similarities, both input source files have a nested
format. The script library allows me to properly format the CSS files.
Unfortunately, this slows down the output file generation.

RESULTS: I re-examined the CSS output file library and found the script
was inefficiently used. I made the obvious modifications and the speed
of the process was considerably improved.

NEXT TASK: I will restart the preliminary development of the website
group section HTML software parts library.

Can Programming Be Strictly Portable Relative To Language?

February 17, 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++.

SUNDAY: 2013/02/17 ************************************************

STATUS: The software parts of the script library have been examined. The software part needed to define one or more parameters at the _RUN_SCRIPT level have yet to be designed.

DETAIL: The capability of passing parameters from a calling script to a called script has already been implemented. The additional software part for implementing this feature from the _RUN_SCRIPT level can be implemented from code associated with these previously developed software parts.

NEXT TASK: The script library will be upgraded next.  The activity report will be presented in the Utility Development blog sub-directory. Although it is possible to “Walk and Chew Gum At The Same Time”, the development of this library will probably be delayed until the script upgrade has been completed.

STATUS: The basic function of this software parts library is to
facilitate the preparation of source code files according to computer
language-specific formats.

DETAIL: Its function is roughly equivalent to the format definition of
a CPP printf command.  Each format would have a specific name and would
be implemented by a script.

NEXT TASK:   The script library will next be examined to see if 1) it
is functionally adequate and 2) it has been adequately tested.
