Open Source Software Development Tool Error

description

An Programmable Software Development Environment system error has been
discovered,

The WIN32 error message is as follows:

PCG ERROR: MacCert -- 455
PCG ERROR: macproj -- 2698
PCG ERROR: macproj -- 315
PCG ERROR: devproj -- 1400
PCG ERROR: mainprj -- 1461
PCG ERROR: explrpde -- 153

The LINUX error message is as follows:

PCG ERROR: MacCert -- 474
PCG ERROR: macproj -- 2717
PCG ERROR: macproj -- 334
PCG ERROR: devproj -- 1419
PCG ERROR: mainprj -- 1480
PCG ERROR: explrpde -- 172

THURSDAY: 2014/11/13

STATUS: The following error was encountered when I was attempting to
separate the very large CSS Web Site Library into a system of smaller,
more compact libraries

DETAIL: When I developed the Programmable Software Development
Environment Version Control capabilities, I did not properly handle the
the include source files needed for the above library conversion effort.

NEXT TASK: An upgrade to the Version Control Capabilities is indicated.
Minimally, the Include statement must be included in the computation of
its pseudo-random parity computation. Furthermore, to insure that the
software parts files defining the release version of library are not in
any way altered, it may be appropriate to include the comments in the
pseudo-random parity computation The next step is to prepare a plan.

MONDAY: 2014/11/17

STATUS: An examination of the precmac.cpp file reveals that none of the
software parts names were included in the computation in the pseudo
random parity. All of the commands contained in the software parts
were included this computation. The include files have no commands,

DETAIL: It will probably be necessary and desirable to include the
comments in the computation of the pseudo random parity for the release
version. It will probable also be necessary to include the test
sequence in the computation. The associated upgrade for the release
version is not needed to correct the associated system error and hence
will be considered later.

NEXT TASK: Start making the modifications to precmac.cpp needed to add
the software parts name (including the include statement) in the
computation of the pseudo-random certification parity bit.

to include the "_INCLUDE" statement in the computation of the
pseudo-random certification parity bit have been made and tested.

DETAIL: All versions (experimental, alpha/beta, release) have been
tested using the revised web-site software parts.

NEXT TASK: The required modifications to the Linux version of
precmac.cpp will be made and tested.

STATUS: My attempts at implementing a Linux version of the
Programmable Software Development Environment were unsuccessful. Some
of the projects functioned successfully. Others "Locked" the program up.

DETAIL: I was victimized by my "All I have to do is..." phrase. This
was not a simple, minor change. In addition based on the development
email notes sent from the Linux Developer, a compiler error was
reported a few months ago.

RESULTS: It is now necessary to re-establish what is working; the debug
version, the pre-release version, and the LINUX compiler.

NEXT TASK: My first step will be to restore the original version and
test its debug, release, and installed versions.

STATUS: All of the software parts library associated with web-site
development process were successfully restored using the original
Programmable Software Development Environment.

DETAIL: As expected, the subject error resulted when css website
library was processed.

RESULTS: I changed the version of the css website library from alpha to
experimental and the subject error no longer occurred. The website
development effort can be performed independently of this upgrade
process.

NEXT TASK: The next step will be to equivalently restore the previous
WIN32 version.

RESULTS: As before, the subject error occurred when the Alpha version
of css website library was processed and the experimental version of
the css website library functioned properly.

NEXT TASK: My next task will be to verify the proper operation / use of
the Linux Compiler.

STATUS: Both a debug and release version of the original Programmable
Software Development Environment was successfully compiled and found to
be functional.

DETAIL: As before, the preparation of a CSS output file was very slow
due to the extensive use of the script library. Additional test will
be needed.

RESULTS: At this time, the LINUX compiler appears to be error free.

NEXT TASK: The next step will be to modify the certification routine to
produce a user error for any software parts file which does not have at
least one software part. A file with only _INCLUDE statements does not
have any software parts.

STATUS: My attempt to modify the version certification and associated
cryptographic routines to produce a user error for any software parts
file which does not have at least one software part was unsuccessful.

DETAIL: Again, I was a victim of the "All you have to do is..."
statement. My apologies...

RESULTS: There is evidently a obscure interface problem between the
cryptographic routines and certification routines made invisible by a
poor error management implementation. My apologies again...

NEXT TASK: My next task will be to restore the original version,
compile an debug version, and find a stable, simple test process. Once
that is done, then the error management code will be appropriately
modified.

STATUS: I restored what I thought was the original WIN32 version. I
compiled both a debug version and release version, and performed some
preliminary tests. To my surprise, I found that nothing changed. The
"restored" versions did not produce the subject error where as the the
production tool being used did.

DETAIL: This surprise caused me to very carefully re-examine the
associated routines, macproj, precmac, maccert, and crypto. I was
looking for a very subtle error or some old coding method no longer
supported and I got my next big surprise. Specifically, my archival
version was not the original version. I checked the Linux version and
it was the equivalent original version.

RESULTS: My version control practices failed! I have a primitive
version control implemented in the Programmable Software Development
Environment and it is woefully inadequate. Improving it will be high
on my priorities.

NEXT TASK: Ny next task will be to very carefully compare the
associated routines of the Linux version with the Windows version to
determine how extensive the version control error is. Once this is
done, I will probably attempt to upgrade the Linux version to see if
it's original difficulties can be resolved.

performance,

DETAIL: The macproj and maccert source files were modified to achieve
the proper error handling.

RESULTS: Except for the development of an experimental version of
software parts library, a software parts file with no commands nor
include commands will be reported as an user error instead of a system
error.

NEXT TASK: My next task will be to similarly upgrade upgrade the
macproj and maccert routines of the Linux versions and then compile and
test the resultant Programmable Software Development Environment.
