Why is a flowchart useful in developing and documenting software? Why is the interactive Visual Logic flowchart program more useful than a manually drawn flowchart?

It also helps the person that is looking at it comprehend the process of the program as well. The interactive Visual Logic flowchart program is more useful than a manually drawn flowchart because it decreases the risk of problems and when you manually draw a flowchart it’s harder to be clear or neat making it. Is a flowchart more valuable in documenting the logic of a program than

Unformatted text preview: just the coded instructions in the programming language? Explain your answer. I think that a flowchart is more valuable in documenting the logic of a program over coding instructions in the programming language because it makes it easier to understand and see what is going on. I took a C programming class, and I could barely keep up with the class because I couldnt understand what was going on and how to program anything was difficult. I understood the beginning, but I think that if there was a flowchart to what I was programming it would have been a lot easier to understand what was going on. When I would program things in C programming, I would get a lot of errors, and I could never understand why I was getting the errors. I think that a flowchart would have been easier to find out what the errors were....
