CE-320 Microcomputers I Fall B 2009 Lecture 8 Supplement Page 2 Structured Programming Structured programming is the name for a style of programming that has proven to be very useful in designing and developing programs. It’s based on expressing a program’s function in terms of a very few basic programming structures, or constructs. The key feature to a construct is that it has only one entry point and only one exit point. This property is critical for maintaining the structured nature. Some of the main advantages of structured programming are: 1. Easy to understand, especially to those who did not write the program initially. 2. Easy to modify/update 3. Often more straightforward to verify correct operation 4.
