Tools for structured design: an introduction to programming logic
The author's objective is to analyze a problem and express its solution in such a way that the computer can be directed to follow the problem-solving procedure. Emphasis is placed on maintaining an overall structure in program design, and pseudo-code is shown as an alternative or supplement to flow-charting. Analyzing techniques of top-down modular program development fosters the reader's inquisitiveness. In this fifth edition, much new information has been added, including a new chapter on modularization. This book will easily fit as the core text for any course covering programming logic and design or structured programming.
