I've compiled my thoughts on the approach and began writing the paper. This section includes my understanding of the tool's functionality as well as possible routes the project may take, if feasible. I have also included a file which contains what I perceive as an example test driver and emailed it along with the paper to Suresh & Kunal for their approval.
I have also picked up the Pragmatic Thinking & Learning text Dr. Xie put on the shelf last week. I shall begin reading this weekend, as I wait for a response.
