2. 2. PROGRAM – COLLECTION OF INSTRUCTIONS  A program is a set of instructions that a computer follows in order to perform a particular task.  A computer program, or just a program, is a sequence of instructions, written to perform a specified task on a computer.  A computer requires programs to function, typically executing the program's instructions in a central processor. 2

6. 6. DEVELOPING A PROGRAM  Plan  Code Programmer:  Good programmer – First plan then code  Large programming task – divide sub process  30 minutes planning could save hours of trying to make the code work properly.  Well planned code is not only more likely to be correct (or at least closer to correct), but is also easier to understand—and thus fix. 6
7. 7. ADD TWO NUMBER  Plan –  Declare two numbers  Give values to these two number  Store the output of these two added number, so need third variable – have to declare 3 variable.  Logically think – c=a+b;  Display the c value. Code int a=10,b=20,c; c=a+b; print the c value: = 30 Output: 30 7
8. 8. PROGRAMMING  Computer programming (often shortened to programming) is a process that leads from an original formulation of a computing problem to executable computer programs  Programming involves activities such as analysis, developing understanding, generating algorithms, verification of requirements of algorithms including their correctness and resources consumption, and implementation (commonly referred to as coding) of algorithms in a target programming language.  Source code is written in one or more programming languages.  The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate performing a specific task or solving a given problem.  The process of programming thus often requires expertise in many different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms and formal logic. 8
9. 9. PDLC  1. Analyze the problem  Precisely define the problem to be solved, and write program specifications – descriptions of the program’s inputs, processing, outputs, and user interface.  Eg : Problem : To find the sum of natural numbers Inputs : 2 positive numbers Processing : Adding first number and second number and storing/Print the result  User Interface : Any Programming Language (C compiler) 9
10. 10. PDLC  2. Design the program  Develop a detailed logic plan using a tool such as pseudo code, flowcharts, object structure diagrams, or event diagrams to group the program’s activities into modules;  Devise a method of solution or algorithm for each module; and test the solution algorithms.  10
11. 11. PDLC  3. Code the program  Translate the design into an application using a programming language or application development tool by creating the user interface and writing code; include internal documentation  – comments and remarks within the code that explain the purpose of code statements. 11
12. 12. #include<stdio.h> main() { int A, B, TOTAL; // Declare the input variables printf(“ Enter the first number”); scanf(%d”, &A); // Get the first input from the user printf(“ Enter the Second number”); scanf(%d”, &B); // Get the second input from the user TOTAL=A+B; // Add the numbers and store it in a variable printf(“ The Sum of Two numbers is %d”,TOTAL); // Print the output getch() ; } 12
13. 13. PDLC  4. Test and debug the program  Test the program, finding and correcting errors (debugging) until it is error free and contains enough safeguards to ensure the desired results.  5. Formalize the solution  Review and, if necessary, revise internal documentation; formalize and complete end- user (external) documentation  6. Operate and Maintain the program  Provide education and support to end users; correct any unanticipated errors that emerge and identify user-requested modifications (enhancements). Once errors or enhancements are identified, the program development life cycle begins again at Step 1. 13
14. 14. ALGORITHM  An algorithm is a set of instructions for solving a problem or accomplishing a task. (or)  An algorithm is an effective method and self-contained step- by-step set of operations to be perform a task in finite amount of time and space. Level of description:  High-level description -algorithm, ignoring the implementation details.  Implementation description- way the implementation is done  Formal description- a finite sequence of instructions to solve some problem 14
15. 15. CHARACTERISTICS  Instruction precise and unambiguous  Finite time  Not be repeated indefinitely  Optimal results – according to input  Unique solution  Finite number of steps  Meaningful information  Easy for understanding – begginer 15
16. 16. ALGORITHM WRITING 1. Get a clear understanding of the problem statement. 2. Proceed in a step by step fashion. 3. Divide the job into parts. 4. Include variables and their usage and define expressions. 5. Outline each loop 6. Include action statements. 7. Work outwards from the Action Statements, figuring out how each parameter will be determined each time the loop goes around 8. Go back to step number if loop or condition fails. 9. Use jump statement to jump from one statement to another. 10. Try to avoid unwanted raw data in algorithm. 11. Use break and stop to terminate the process. 16
17. 17. EXAMPLE:  Algorithm to find area of a circle 1. Start 2. Input the value of radius R 3. Let PI=3.14 4. Calculate area=PI*R*R 5. Print area 6.End 17
18. 18. FLOWCHART How to describe an animal to baby? color,size, etc – not understand Show picture – Now – baby understood “ PICTURES TALKS MORE THAN WORDS’ Like flowcharts - graphical representation of computer programs. 18
19. 19. FLOWCHARTS CONT’  A flowchart is a visual representation of the sequence of steps and decisions needed to perform a process.  Flowcharts use special shapes to represent different types of actions or steps in a process. Types : I. Sequential Structure – sequential order II. Selective Structure – condition expression (T/F) III. Looping Structure – Iteration – repeatedly check condition until false 19

25. 25. 25
26. 26. On-page Connector Connects two or more parts of a flowchart, which are on the same page. Off-page Connector Connects two parts of a flowchart which are spread over different pages. 26
27. 27. GUIDELINES  Understand a system before flowcharting it.  Flowchart can have only one start and one stop symbol  Identify the entities, such as departments, job functions, or external parties that are to be flowcharted.  divide the flowchart into columns, label each column  Use standard flowcharting symbols  Clearly label all symbols  Use arrowheads on all flow lines.  Try to use only one page per flowchart  On-page connectors are referenced using numbers  Off-page connectors are referenced using alphabets  General flow of processes is top to bottom or left to right  Arrows should not cross each other  Place the name of the flowchart, the date it was prepared, and the designer's name on each page of the flowchart. 27
28. 28. HOW TO DRAW FLOWCHART  Input is Number1, Number2  Output is stored in Sum  Concentrate on the symbols used. 28
29. 29. FLOWCHART ADVANTAGES  Flowcharts are easier to understand compare to Algorithms and Pseudo code.  It helps us to understand Logic of given problem.  It is very easy to draw flowchart in any word processing software like MS Word.  Using only very few symbol, complex problem can be represented in flowchart.  Software like RAPTOR can be used to check correctness of flowchart drawn in computers.  Flowcharts are one of the good way of documenting programs.  It helps us in debugging process. 29
30. 30. FLOWCHART DISADVANTAGES  Manual tracing is needed to check correctness of flowchart drawn on paper.  Simple modification in problem logic may leads to complete redraw of flowchart.  Showing many branches and looping in flowchart is difficult.  In case of complex program/algorithm, flowchart becomes very complex and clumsy.  Modification of flowchart is sometimes time consuming. 30
31. 31. PSEUDO CODE  A notation resembling a simplified programming language, used in program design.  An outline of a program, written in a form that can easily be converted into real programming statements.  Pseudocode cannot be compiled nor executed, and there are no real formatting or syntax rules. It is simply one step - an important one - in producing the final code  Pseudocode is a "text-based" detail (algorithmic) design tool.  Include control structures such as WHILE, IF-THEN-ELSE, REPEAT-UNTIL, FOR, and CASE, which are present in many high level languages 31
32. 32. PSEUDO GUIDELINES : RULES FOR PSEUDOCODE  Write only one statement per line  Capitalize initial keyword  Indent to show hierarchy  End multiline structures  Keep statements language independent 32
33. 33. GUIDELINES CONT’  1. Write only one statement per line:  READ a,b  2. Capitalize initial keyword  READ, WRITE, IF, ELSE, ENDIF, WHILE, ENDWHILE, REPEAT, UNTIL 3 3. Indent to show hierarchy SEQUENCE - all starting in the same column. SELECTION - indent the statements that fall inside the selection structure, but not the keywords that form the selection LOOPING- indent the statements that fall inside the loop, but not the keywords that form the loop 33
34. 34. GUIDELINES CONT’  4. End multiline structures  how the IF/ELSE/ENDIF is constructed above. The ENDIF (or END whatever) always is in line with the IF (or whatever starts the structure).  5. Keep statements language independent  to write in whatever language you are most comfortable with.  if you are SURE it will be written in that language, then you can use the features. If not, then avoid using the special features. 34
35. 35. BENEFITS/ADVANTAGES OF PSEUDOCODE:  Can be done easily on a word processor Easily modified  Implements structured concepts well  Clarify algorithms in many cases.  Impose increased discipline on the process of documenting detailed design. Provide additional level at which inspection can be performed.  Help to trap defects before they become code.  Increases product reliability.  May decreases overall costs.  It can be easily modified as compared to flowchart.  Its implementation is very useful in structured design elements.  It can be written easily.  It can be read and understood easily.  Converting a pseudocode to programming language is very easy as compared with converting a flowchart to programming language. 35
36. 36. LIMITATIONS/DISADVANTAGES OF PSEUDO CODE:  It's not visual  Create an additional level of documentation to maintain.  Introduce error possibilities in translating to code.  May require tool to extract pseudocode and facilitate drawing flowcharts.  There is no accepted standard, so it varies widely from company to company  We do not get a picture of the design.  There is no standardized style or format, so one pseudocode may be different from another.  For a beginner, it is more difficult to follow the logic or write pseudocode as compared to flowchart. 36
37. 37. EXAMPLE FOR PSEUDO CODE BEGIN READ A,B IF(A>B) PRINT A ELSE PRINT B ENDIF END 37
38. 38. PROGRAM CONTROL STRUCTURE  Control Structures are just a way to specify flow of control in programs.  Analyze the flow control  Act as a decision maker in computing Basic Terminology: 1) Precondition (Entry control) - state of variables before entering a control structure. 2) Post condition (Exit control)- state of variables after the algorithm is run 38
39. 39. BASIC CONTROL STRUCTURE  Sequential  Selection / conditional / Decision control statements  Looping /Iteration/ Repetition 39
