Drawing a flowchart for programming will help programmers understand algorithms before writing the code. Programming flowchart can also help people understand the basic logic and discover flaws in it.

Part 1: What is The Program Flowchart?

Programming is the process of taking an algorithm and encoding it into a notation, a special programming language, in order to make them can be executed by a computer. The Program flowchart is a diagrammatic representation of an algorithm and encoding, which is helpful in writing program and explaining program to others.

A program flowchart is used to illustrate the sequence of coded instructions that a computer uses to perform specified operations. Similar to the regular flowchart, shapes are used to represent particular operations, and the sequence and relationship between them are shown with connecting lines.

The Usage of Program Flowchart

Program flowcharts are useful for helping developers map out the sequences before they are implemented. In addition, they can be useful for identifying any bugs before implementation. It can also act as a blueprint of the overall system for developers, enabling them to work more efficiently.
