How to Design a Technical Flowchart in Writing Program and Explaining Program to Others

[PDF] Flowchart is a diagrammatic representation of an algorithm. Flowchart are very helpful in writing program and explaining program to others. Different symbols are used for different states in flowchart, For example: Input/Output and decision making has different symbols. The table below shows all the symbols that are used in designing flowchart.




 Flow-line Flow line Used to indicate the flow of logic by connecting symbols.
 Terminal Terminal(Stop/Start) Used to represent start and end of flowchart.
 Data Input and Output Input/Output Used for input and output operation.
 Processing Processing Used for arithmetic operations and data-manipulations.
 decision making Decision Used to represent the operation in which there are two alternatives, true and false.
 On-page-connector On-page Connector Used to join different flow line
 off-page-connector Off-page Connector Used to connect flowchart portion on different page.
 Predefined-process Predefined Process/Function Used to represent a group of statements performing one processing task.

Generally you can design a flowchart for programming with pencil and paper. People usually use flowchart drawing tool to design flowcharts for programming. There are many flowchart drawing tool through internet searching. A free flowchart drawing tool is enough for your use.
