MONDAY: There are a number of software parts that are common between the development of the Programmable Software Development Environment manual and the web-site.  A common library is being prepared for these software parts.  These parts will be integrated into the Web-site development project first.

TUESDAY: The update of the Programmable Software Development Environment manual has been restarted. It is vitally important to eliminate the need of Front Page which is not portable between Windows and Linux. Front Page has been used to modify the Software Parts File Table of contents to enable the update to take place. Specifically, the associated *.htm files and associated links have been converted to *.html files.

FRIDAY: In response to the modifications to the Programmable Software Development Environment to provide the capability of preparing a text file copy of the command line screen display, I will need to modify the project file section of the manual. When I originally prepared this section, I did not have multiple levels of the development task file.  This has greatly simplified my upgrade activities of the software parts section. I should probably "Bite the Bullet" and start the revision of the project file section. This will be a major effort.  Once done, I can release this version of the Programmable Software Development Environment.

SATURDAY: I have examined the project file section directories and have a plan for its update. This will basically involved putting the files defining each of the pages into dedicated sub-directories. This will greatly simplify the design philosophy and will make it much easier to add the new commands. The project file's overview page will be the first one to be moved to a dedicated sub-directory.

TUESDAY: The OVERVIEW page of the PROJECT FILE section has been moved to a dedicated sub-directory.  The FILE UPDATE CONSIDERATIONS page will be moved next to a dedicated sub-directory.

THURSDAY: The OVERVIEW page of the FILE UPDATE CONSIDERATIONS section has been moved to a dedicated sub-directory.  The PROJECT FILE COMMANDS page  will be moved next to a dedicated sub-directory.

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++.
 
SATURDAY: The common names-include software parts kit is next on the modification list. Specifically, it will be adapted to be compatible with the copy certification library.
 
MONDAY: The common names-include software parts kit has been modified to take full advantage of the benefits of the copy certification library. This has resulted in a much simpler design.  Preparing the software parts kit for formal test is the next step.
 
THURSDAY: The common names-include software parts kit has been formally tested. Updating the common include software parts kit is the next step.

MONDAY: An additional page in the PROJECT FILE section was needed before the The "COMMAND SEQUENCE" page could be updated.  This page titled "COMMAND LINE REPORT FILE" provides an overview of the new command line reporting capabilities that have been added to the Programmable Software Development Environment. It has been successfully added to the "PROJECT FILE" section of the Manual. I should now be able to modify the  "COMMAND SEQUENCE" page.

TUESDAY: The "COMMAND SEQUENCE" page of the PROJECT FILE section has been modified.   The "Display Command" page will next be moved to a dedicated sub-directory.

THURSDAY: The "Display Command" has been successfully moved to a dedicated sub-directory.  The "_SET_TAB Command" page will be moved next to a dedicated sub-directory.

FRIDAY: The "_REPORT_FILE" has been successfully prepared. The development of the new "Report Generation Commands" page is next.

MONDAY: The development of the new "Report Generation Commands" page has been successfully completed. I believe that the current version of the manual is adequate for the new version of the Programmable Software Development Environment. The common line screen reporting capabilities are important for our communication. The next step will be to proof the manual. When completed, this version of the Programmable Software Development Environment can be prepared for publication

TUESDAY: My first examination of the Manual revealed link errors that have been corrected. I also observed some deficiencies in the documentation of the Project File relative to the Command-Line Report Generation File. My next task will be to re-examine and correct these deficiencies.

THURSDAY: The observed deficiencies in the documentation of the Project File relative to the Command-Line Report Generation File have been fixed. A second overall review of the manual needs to be made and then this version of the Programmable Software Development Environment can be packaged for upload. It is also important at this time to review the web-site for needed upgrade.
