Programming Technique You Use
November 15, 2008 12:13am CST
As much as a way to share experiences, this discussion is also meant to be a guide to members who want to learn programming. How do you design a program? Do you draft everything beforehand? Do you write down every single code on paper before typing them in? Does your coding resembles spaghetti? Or do you use any other technique? My first program was a failure, the result of not referring to anyone (because I used to keep my problems to myself). After re-reading the manual, I started to use modular programming technique. I made extensive use of sub-routines and later on procedures. This helped in a faster coding and testing rate. I do not use a single flow chart. For all the programs I had written, my first flow chart consisted of startmenuend. The menu flowchart was then divided into other flow charts. Many programmers and lecturers in computer studies were not exactly familiar with this method. After following my method, one student no longer had his work commented by his lecturer. So is there anyone out there willing to share his/her approach to writing code? Thanking you all in advance.
