For purposes of this Independent Research and Development Effort, a Software Resource is a capability that is optionally needed in a software development task. A resource can either be a special data type such as a string or a special processing method such as a state machine.  The single point definition for each resource will be a software parts library.

The plumbing for the optional resources will be implemented next.  The first resource to be implemented will be the character string data element. This will necessitate an upgrade to the "data type", "structure" and "class base" sub-tasks.  Again, strict portability is required.
