Nassi-Shneiderman Diagrams

Also known as Chapin Charts, Nassi-Shneiderman (N-S) diagrams are a modern alternative to flowcharts for the following reasons:

  1. N-S diagrams are an alternative to simple flowchart.
  2. An N-S diagram can be drawn using text and lines (or completely with ASCII characters).
  3. N-S diagrams show processing by series, by selection, or by iteration.
  4. N-S diagrams are read from top to bottom.
  5. N-S diagrams are more structured than flow charting (one start, one end).
