Daily log:
This year's GSoC was my first and most exciting projects given the fact that I'm working on my first opensource project and contributing for my first time to a great software and organization like BRL-CAD.
For the past three months I worked on implementing a pull routine which reversed the effects of a push on a CSG tree. This project focused on reversing the effects of the push command available in BRL-CAD and also pulling up and unpushed node. While following my implementation outline as described in my [http://brlcad.org/wiki/User:NyahCh3ck20/GSOC13/Design_Document Design Document], I kept modifying the plan as needed and tried updating my [http://brlcad.org/wiki/User:NyahCh3ck20/GSoc2013/Coding_Report logs] daily especially when I initially had no stable Internet access.
Before the Mid-term Evaluations, I studied the push and xpush routines seeing how the matrices were pushed down the tree in respective commands and started implementing and finished implementing the pull_comb() routine which pulls the matrix transformations in a combination node. Submitted patches on sourceforge for review. I tested various parts of the routine and made sure routine works perfectly will continue testing and fixing bugs if any post GSoC to make sure command is complete. Also, I wrote tests for the poly.c routines and submitted patches on sourceforge; tested the bn_mat_inverse() routine implemented for BRL-CAD and proposed new routine  which are still awaiting review by mentors.
Post Mid-term evaluations, I studied the various primitives trying to figure out how to implement the pull_leaf() routine for each primitive which was later disproved by Sean as a bad design choice which led to my implementing of the pull_leaf() using the AABB's of primitives which enabled me to pull translation components successfully. I also developed the pull interface, wrote regression tests, created the man pages and other documentation which will integrate command fully into BRL-CAD.
During Final Days and Post-GSoC I plan to finish implementing the pull_leaf routine which pulls both the scale and rotation components of primitives for BRL-CAD completing the pull routine and any other new projects as needed.
This was one of the most exciting summers of my life.
=== Test Results ===
* Pulling unpushed object pulls matrix transformations up the tree.

*Monday 1 July
Well did not code because of Preparations to attend the Google Student's Ambassador's Summit in Nairobi, Kenya for Africa. This summit goes on for the whole week. But will try to fix problems with my code patches while at the summit.
*Tuesday 2 July 2013
Boarded Kenyan Airways flight from Douala Int'l to the Jomo Kenyatta Int'l in Nairobi which took about 5 hours; then registered with the GSA team.
*Wednesday 3 July 2013
Attended the First day of Summit where we had talks with Google Engineers about being a good ambassador. Presentations were given by Mr. Obum Ekeke , Tayib Fall
and others about opportunities at Google.
*Thursday 4 July 2013
Second Day of Summit focused on Google products like Adwords, Adsense and other products; also, Engr. Giacomo(Googler) gave a presentation on Webmaster tools and Google Search in general.
*Friday 5 July 2013
Third day of Summit where we focused on making greater impacts on our communities in Africa; with awards given to Star GSAs of the previous years.
Shared ideas and experiences for the Moonshot idea competition organised as per country we emerged 3rd after South Africa and Kenya.
Developed plans to execute our moonshot idea as we returned home after the summit
*Saturday 6 July
Preparing for return trip to Douala Int'l and went round Nairobi for shopping and other stuffs.
*Sunday 7 July
Returned from Nairobi to Douala and after meeting family travelled to Buea to prepare for coming week.
== 8 July - 14 July ==
== 8 July - 14 July ==
*8 July 2013
Wrote a report to be submitted to the Vice Chancellor concerning my experiences on Google Student Ambassador's summit and preparing for a Numerical Analysis Exam
Took further look at source code(/src/push.c) to see how the matrix transformations are applied to the coordinate points of the node so as to determine a way of
extracting the original matrix transformation or almost exact matrix transformation for source code.
Glad the Dean of the faculty of Science authorized the installation of Internet in the CS so we can have 24/7 Internet access
*Tuesday 9 July
Wrote my Numerical Analysis exams and to finish with exams tomorrow so i can focus on GSoC full time.
*Wednesday 10 July
Finished writing exams today and
started preparing previous code patches(mat.c,push.c,pull.c) so that when the Internet access is available
all files will be uploaded so as to get commit access.
*11 July 2013
studied the brlcad primtive internals like(torus, spheroids,  toruses (torii), spheres, ellipsoids, pyramids) so as to be able generate the original transformation matrix. Torus, struct rt_tor_internal Centerpoint, point_t v, is obviously the translation.  The orientation and scale is defined by vect_t h, and radiuses by fast_t r_h and fast_t r_a. Because of symmetries, the original transformation matrix must have contained a translation of v, and a rotation that brings vect_t h to an axis
Spheres and ellipsoids, struct rt_ell_internal Centerpoint is at point_t v, which again is obviously the translation done.There are three vectors, point_t a, point_t b, and point_t c, that describe the spheroid axes. This means that I can construct the transformation matrix that transforms the unit sphere to this sphere directly.
for Truncated general cones, struct rt_tgc_internal Centerpoint is at vect_t v, with vect_t h describing the axis. The base of the cone is, I think, described by the vectors vect_t a and vect_t b, and the top of the cone by vectors vect_t c and vect_t d. This implies that a·b=0 and c·d=0, but they may not be perpendicular to h, since the base and top of a general cone may be cut along any direction. v is the translation, and h should be along an axis (probably z axis). This yields three vectors (h, f, g), that along with the translation vector v define the transformation matrix just like in the ellipsoid case.
Also, looked at data type for Pyramids: struct rt_arb8_internal This data type contains between four (tetrahedron) to eight vertices as point_t variables. Pyramids and tetrahedra have the apex vertex perpendicular and center to a face. This can be taken as the face vector. The second vector is one that bisects an edge (the longest edge?) of the face perpendicular to the apex. The third vector is their cross product, and is either towards a vertex (a tetrahedron) or halves another edge of the face perpendicular to the apex (a pyramid). These three vectors can be used to regenerate the initial transformation matrix, with e.g. the base on the XY plane, and the apex along the Z axis.
To look at  wedges, Boxes, and convex polyhedra tomorrow.
* 12 July 2013
Prepared complete patches and uploaded to sf to replace the existing patches for new push routine(push.c), pull routines(pull.c) and bn_mat_inverse routine(mat.c) with orthogonal matrix support. Since there is no internet connection, I could not create these patches with the current svn checkout.
Continued study of implementation of push.c so as to see what happens to coordinate points of the node, to determine how some form of the original matrix transformation is stored so as to ease restore during the pull routine.
*13 July 2013
Did no work because of a long meeting( in my capacity as Auditor of Computer Engineering students Association) of over 5 hours with the Dean of Faculty to draft modalities for new student union body and draft constitution and mission to govern association.
Will start implementing the pull leaf function as from Monday which will extract the matrix transformations from the primitives(solid) or leaf nodes.
== 15 July - 21 July ==
== 15 July - 21 July ==
Monday 15 July
*Implemented the pull_leaf routine which build a linked list for object's tree which would be used in extracting  matrix transformations in leaf_mat() routine I am to start working on tomorrow.
*continued with the implementation of the ged_pull by adding -d option to command to enable a debug of command as in push -d
Todo: To ask on mailing list how to generate a Magic ID since its needed for the pull.
Tuesday July 16 2013
*Further worked on the pull_leaf routine to make sure list is properly built and created loop to free up list if errors occured during the list build like pulling unpushed nodes.
* Started working on a loop to move through the nodes of the linked list making the necessary mat_t changes while moving upwards modifying the current matrix transformation as it encounters a new leaf when necessary calculating and storing the inverse matrices up the tree till it reaches the root. This will then be followed by writing these changes to the database.
TODO: Ask on mailing list how my current working model solves the method so as to make the necesary changes in approach and continue.
Wednesday  July 17, 2013
*Finished writing loop that moves backwards on the newly built list of nodes on the tree, performing inverses as necesary,storing the changes on the node, writing to database and setting the matrix transformations for primitives(leaves) to identity as necessary.
*Wrote loop that frees up built list and returns result of object pull.
*started testing of pull command and to continue fixing bugs. Till command is ok before adding support to pull more than one object.
*Performed another benchmark test for the orthogonal matrix support for bn_mat_inverse() in mat.c
*Uploaded code patches for mat.c and combined push and xpush to sourceforge.
Todo: fix all problems with with currrent and past patches and upload to sf for mentor review.
Thursday July 18, 2013
*Started working on compile time errors of the pull.c by fixing some pointer casts and others.
Friday July 19, 2013
*Finished debugging compile errors and started testing routine.
*Tested for improper use of command(pull 'no object'), returned correct errors
*Tested for pulling a primitive.(returned correct error message).
*Tested for pulling an object which has not been previously pulled.(mged crashed due to segmentation fault) to start working on bug next week.
Will be taking tomorrow off since its my birthday and start working on bugs and patches next week.

*Added -x option to push command. But command fails to read options in mged. Tried (Pd:x) and Pdx as arguments to bu_getopt() but command fails to read options. Continued testing and debugging.
*Changed the call of pushx(formerly ged_xpush to take as args gedp,dp so as to proceed to xpushing of object. Still testing routine.
*Debugged push command to support -x option, made [https://sourceforge.net/p/brlcad/patches/217/ patch] and submitted on sourceforge. However command can push only an object at a time so further work needs to be done to added support for multiple objects.
* Some tests on command [http://brlcad.org/wiki/File:Testing_new_push_routine.png Here]
TOD0: Add support for multiple objects then clean up xpush in BRL-CAD.

Monday Aug 5, 2013
*Started working on the pull routine making sure non-leaf objects could be pulled.
started by building a linked list. and there is a bug lurking in there somewhere in. Spent whole day here; will continue work on it tomorrow after i finish moving the comments. starseeker talked about.
* will upload latest patch to sf which should apply cleanly
Tuesday Aug 6, 2013
*had to continue debugging pull.c but persistent problems with patches forced me to continue working on the libbn unit test patches I submitted on sourceforge.
*Currently fixing patches with Erik so they can apply cleanly.
Will be travelling home tomorrow and resume on Monday next week; So i'm to finish with these patches and get commit access so I could work freely on my project.
== 12 August - 18 August  ==
Monday Aug 12 2013
*Finished correcting indentation errors on libbn unit tests for polynomial routines.
*Continued test of pull routine; since tree fails to build linked list and discoved that the problem actually lied in the fact that I was testing on invalid input so linked list was not built. Trying appropriate objects.
Tuesday Aug 13 2013
*Continued testing of pull routine on non leaf nodes like regions and combinations and this kept reporting a segmentation fault. To continue debugging
Wednesday Aug 14, 2013
* continued working on the pull or matrix transformations up one level but work halted due to lights out for the rest of day.
Thursday Aug 15, 2013
*Fixed patch on bn_poly_add() test and uploaded code to sourceforge, continued debugging bn_poly_synthetic_division() routine but error kept coming from bn_poly_synthetic routine itself as traced by gdb. Continue working on it.
* Resolved an issue with test but seg fault still lurks somewhere in code; been starting for over an hour and still getting nowhere. Will look at that tomorrow.
Friday Aug 16, 2013
*Fixed the bn_poly_synthetic_division() unit test and uploaded code to sourceforge.
* Started looking at the db_preorder_traverse() routine ( although its not clear what struct db_traverse is since i don't see definition in source code) and how I could use it in implementing pull routine.

Saturday Aug 17, 2013
*Reworked the accepted patches and submitted patch on sourceforge.
*Fixed the bn_poly_quadratic_roots() routine and submitted code on sourceforge.
*Started working on plan to implement pull using the db_preorder_traverse() which will need some routines to work with combinations and extract matrix transoformations from primitives
ToDo: To start working on the leaf_mat() routine which extracts matrix transformation from primitive.
== 19 August - 25 August  ==
Monday August 19, 2013
* Started reworking the pull_leaf routine to use db_functree instead of db_preorder_walk but may still use later to extract matrix transformation from primitives and continue walking up the tree. Still to ask on mailing which primitives to support first.
* Wrote the comb_enter_func() which restores the matrix transformations of a combination but is still dependent on pull_leaf() which is to deal with various primitives. To ask sean how to store changes on a combination matrix.
ToDo: Continue implementing pull_leaf() adding support to pull matrix transformation from torus then, spheres, ellipsoids and in that order.
Still wondering why commit access is not coming!
Tuesday August 20, 2013
*Finished Writing the pull_comb() routine together with the pull_comb_mat() routines. Discussed with Sean about test driven development. Will start writing unit test for routines tomorrow
*Looked into BRL-CAD source on how to write pull_leaf() routines which will support various primitives in the pull process since they don't have matrix transformation as such. Still to look at pull_leaf to actually see how they dealt with primitives
Wednesday August 21, 2013
*Started looking at test provided by Sean to use of db_walk_tree so as to be able to create a similar for pull_comb using db_functree() but faced problems calling functions in BRL-CAD's libraries. So i'll continue working on test tomorrow
*Continued adding some functionalities to pull_leaf() routine.(still crude) will continue work on pull_leaf after testing pull_comb() perfectly
Thursday August 22, 2013
*Started and finished writing pull_comb() unit test. But there is actually a seg fault which prevents the cur_mat() pointer from being inverted. Probably NULL.
*Will continue debugging and finish testing pull_comb() tomorrow then move on to pull_leaf()
Friday August 23, 2013
*Finished debugging pull_comb() and tested routine. Works perfectly.
Any way to note changes made on combination. pulled matrix is stored on
*Created patch to stub empty pull routine into brlcad. then continue working on pull_leaf() routine tomorrow.
* Waiting for mentors to apply patch so i could create patch which adds pull_comb() routine into BRL-CAD.
== Aug 26 -  Sept 01  ==
Monday 26 August 2013
* Started implementing the pull_leaf routine which extracts the 4x4 matrix transformations for a primitive. Succeeeded in implementing the pull_leaf for an ellipse, sphere, EPH, elliptical parabola, elliptical torus, extrude, hyperbola, and a particle.
* started testing function and will continue debugging tomorrow before continuing with the addition of the superellipse, metaball, arbitrary complex polyhedra, arb8, rhc, rpc, and pipe.
Tuesday 27 August 2013
*Finished debugging pull_leaf() but routine is incomplete since I don't currently support all primitives. Will follow Sean's instructions and start developing pull interface from tomorrow by adding synopsis, docs, full integration and test cases.
*Added support for truncated cones in pull_leaf() but a bug hangs in there. Will take a peek tomorrow or finish this night before going to sleep.
Wednesday August 28, 2013
*Started developing the interface by adding the stubbing the pull to archer  interface.
*Added the pull routine to the tclscripts, libtclcad, and wrote the pull documentation in brlcad/doc/ directories.
Still to finish writing the regresssion tests before moving on to adding  support for pulling primitives on BRL-CAD.
Thursday August 29, 2013
*Started and finished writing the regression tests for the pull command.
*Tested and compiled code but pull does not appear on the command line when regression tests are ran. Will ask on IRC for assistance here.
Todo: When done with developing the pull interface, I'll dive into writing the pull_leaf routine for all primitives.
Friday August 30, 2013
*Tested regression tests for pull and added manual pages and documentation for pull successfully such as in man pages, appropos library for pull
*To create patch and submit on sourceforge, also tried adding pull to archer but found a little problem. To discuss with mentor on how to proceed.
TodO: After approval of man pages, to continue adding support for all primitives into pull command. and fix bn_poly_sub() test patch.
Saturday August 31, 2013
*Finished testing regression tests and uploaded code to sourceforge
* Continued looking at the primitives such as arb8, arbn so as to continue working on primitives for pull.
== Sept 02 - Sept 08  ==
Monday Sept 02
*Started looking at the other primitives; left to complete the pull_leaf() routine. Saw many complications with many primitives. Will need the Assistance of Sean in extracting the matrix transformations from them.
Tuesday Sept 03
*Fixed bug in bn_poly_sub() unit test; uploaded code to [https://sourceforge.net/p/brlcad/patches/224/ sourceforge].
*Succeeded in pulling the following primitives(TGC, REC, PARTICLE, EPA, EHY, HYP, ETO, EXTRUDE). Still left with about 26 primitives to be pulled in order to complete the pull_leaf() routine.
Will need some directions on how to implement pull_leaf() since using switch case statements is not a good design choice.
Thursday05 - Sunday 08
*Took a break so as to recover from malaria.
== Sept 09 - Sept 15  ==
Monday 09 October
*Started looking at AABB bbox routines in BRL-CAD. Still to develop simple algorithm that automatically processes the translation from bbox return vectors to determine original translation.
*Read some online wiki pages on AABB bounding box of objects.
ToDO: To start writing routine and unit test tomorrow
Tuesday 10 October
*Started and finished writing tranlate routine which extracts and sets the translation component from the bounding box minimum and maximum points from the bounding box routine.
*To integrate general bounding box calculating function for every primitive.
Wednesday 11 October
* Started testing pull_leaf routine using the rt_functab bbox routine and successfully pulled some translations assuming object's centrepoint was translated from the origin(0,0,0). But still waiting on Sean for some clarifications on the math.
Since i'll have to attend the Google Student Ambassador's summit in the first days of July and exams begin on the early part of July i'll move some of the work overhead to june when coding begins.
*To look at confirmation from sean and perfect the pull_leaf routine, completing the pull routine and running through valgrind.
Thursday 12 October
*Perfected math on moving bounding box and primitive to origin before extracting translation. But will start testing tomorrow.
