ummm no... but i'm not sure about what ur asking... u want a program that makes flow charts? or do you want somebody to make it for you..
and hey... i had that sig b4, but dan took it off

ill take that pic off..ive heard lots of horror stories (people overreacting)...


but anyway...

I just need a piece of software that will make and print flowcharts (like a template, for eg.)...where I just type in the info in the necessary places (something easy and quick..like i said)...

and the second part of my question was if there was a program that will just read the programming language, and do it all for you....

ok well, no... there is no such program, but you can make it on vb very easily... and for the second part, are you out of ur f****** mind? how lazy can you be?

i'm sure you could find a program to make flowcharts somewhere... there's useless junk like that all over the internet. worst case scenario, use mspaint. i'm sure you know how to make flowcharts by hand so you should know the shapes... and if you don't, i doubt a program for making flowcharts would help you.

MS Word has those boxes and arrows... you can easily draw a flowchart there Smile

hey..its perfectly possible!...and yes ...i am lazy....especially when it comes to more than 100 lines of code...lol...(i got like 550 or sumthin like that)

but the whole point of flowcharting is the planning. it should be done before the programming. and even still, it should be a simplified version of the program's source code (or rather, the source code should be a complified version of the flowchart) so it should be a lot shorter even if you have a hundred lines of code.
take evasive maneuvers for example, it's about 3200 lines of code, but in flowchart form it'd be... ok bad example. but still, the flowcharting shouldn't be too long... but does you're teacher really make you convert programs to flowcharts?

good point...lol

yes...we got some dumb stuff to do..im gettin 99 in class..but we still have to do algorithms/flowcharts (to learn to plan, and to learn how a program works)..which i already know, so i find this quite boring. (we have to do it for quite simple programs). I dont think i've done the flowcharting before a program once! LOL

ill see how "simple" i can make it...

heck, just turn everything into procedures for the sake of really easy flowchart Laughing

Flow charts are not a bad idea when you are working on a large project. Planning is important regardless of the method. If you just sit down and start coding without putting any thought into it, you could end up with something great, or more likely you are gonna end up with a messy POS. Which may or may not run, and if it runs it may or may not perform it's task properly.

Internal documentation may not be neccessary for classroom work, but it has a purpose. It is attempting to get you to think logicly like the machine would through a problem.

good point. but my problem is that i just don't see the purpose of converting an already written program into flowchart format.
