Tables, flow charts, and program logic

by M. Montalbano
'Decision' tables are introduced with reference to business data processing. A method of verifying both the completeness and consistency of a problem description is given. The conversion of tables to computer programs is considered and a technique of obtaining a computer program which minimizes the branching requirements with respect to both memory and execute time is included. Program debugging and program modification are also discussed.
