EXPLRPDE PUBLICATION

A major problem associated with the publication of an explrpde that
functions on the Windows, Linux and Apple machine has been solved.

Recently, on a backup Windows Machine, the Norton Security program
declared the explrpde a dangerous program and removed it.

This program has been developed a long time ago using Watcom C, C++
an obsolete development program; hence, no surprise.

This problem was solved by using a Windows based gcc compiler
(MinGW—W64-i686-7.3.0-posix-dwarf). This development system
can be downloaded free-of-charge.

Significant revisions to the Website and the Manual will be required.

CLASS DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

The class common structure libraries has been developed and tested. It is
now ready for use. The next class related library project will be directed
to the variables used in a routine. A new variable project will begin.

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.

The Linux prepare_include library has been successfully developed for producing a
include file associated with a software parts file. The next step is to export
this library to the Windows and Apple machine. This is the first step
in preparing the project for making the prepareworkspace library.

Common Class Routine Libraries

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 STRUCT LIBRARY

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

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.

COMMON CLASS LIBRARIES

The unique alias enforcement problem has been solved by using a layered library
methodology. Adding additional text to the alias name was not necessary.
Some minor modifications to the CommonClassStruct will be implemented next.

STNDPCG LINUX RECOVERY

The executable file for the STNDPCG has been successfully tested and is
ready for use. A windows gcc development tool is being considered for
strict portability.

COMMON CLASS LIBRARY DEVELOPMENT

The preparation of a functional classcommonstruct library continues. The
_BASIC_STRUCT_LOAD_BEGIN, _LOAD_STRUCT_LOAD_NAME_BEGIN,
and LOAD_STRUCT_LOAD_ELEMENT software parts have been modified and

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.
