1 COMP 221: INTRODUCTION TO STRUCTURED PROGRAMMING Structured program development Structured programming is a way in which a programming language can be constructed. It was formerly introduced as a means of avoiding the use of ‘GOTO’ statements in program code that was used in the early days and to provide some means by which programmers could more easily follow code written by other programmers. Programs produced with structured techniques are clearer, easier to debug and modify. The results of using structured programming have been impressive as software development groups have reported reduced development times, more frequent on-time delivery of systems and more frequent within budget competition of software projects. A structured program is one written using simple control structures to organize the solution to a problem. Three control structures used to develop structured programs are: the sequence structure, the selection structure and therepetition structure. Read the following chapter on:
