Design and Program Structures
The purpose of programming is designing a computer solution to a problem. An algorithm and the appropriate data structures have to be designed that will carry out the problem solution. An algorithm is a detailed and precise sequence of activities that accomplishes a solution to a problem. A programming language is used to implement an algorithm and data descriptions that represent the solution to a problem. This chapter explains the general design structures of an algorithm. These are explained using informal, more general, and higher-level notations: flowcharts and pseudo-code.
