The app worked mostly-right, but patience based on surety of my abilities, plus certainty that I don’t know everything, plus continued positive reinforcement/encouragement from one skipping a step in the process (to arrive at “Gorgeous” early), resulted in the key road-block being three completely unrelated roadblocks.
- The original app didn’t care about whether a dependent was installed or not, so failed silently when it wasn’t installed, rather than the more-common bizarre codified error message;
- Correcting the code to report failures (& log them in detail) also revealed a slight typoe in my enhancements;
- Correcting the typoe produced hard data which could then be adjusted to produce not only accurate but quite readable PDF reports.
Up to that point, nada.
Determination is irreplaceable! (-:
