Are Nassi - Shneiderman diagrams in fact made use of?
I learnt more about them in a Structured Programming training course, yet never ever saw them made use of after that either at the evaluation stage or for documents objectives. Not also for very structured languages like Pascal (Delphi).
Does any one of you in fact make use of Nassi - Shneiderman diagrams? If of course, what devices do you make use of to create/maintain them?
Or have you never ever came across them?
I assumed they were trendy when I found the symbols in the very early 80s. Yet it is so near regular code, and also difficult to keep both the diagrams and also the code that I determined simply making use of indented code was close sufficient for my preference.
Yes, I utilized them some years earlier, yet in times of UML they show up a little old made. In my point of view the Nassi - Shneiderman - Diagram is still an excellent layout type to envision an organized code block, much much better than an UML - Activity - Diagram.
Beyond it could be less complicated to merely have a straight check into the code ...

I have actually utilized them. Yet regularly I make use of some sort of pseudocode when making an algorithm.
You can write pseudocode with any kind of editor and also pen/paper mix. Diagrams are usually harder to modify and also often tend to get unpleasant.
I still make use of UML diagrams for OO layout. Primarily class, yet occasionally state change diagrams for courses with intricate state.
I've come across them and also read a couple of publications that utilized them thoroughly. I promptly ended that also setting up language (as an example, MIXAL in Knuth's publications) was extra easy to understand. I never ever had also the least impulse to attract one (and also can not remember any person's ever before having actually asked me to either).
Heard of Nassi - Shneiderman diagrams, although I do not utilize them myself.
I can not aid uploading a link to the denial letter that Nassi and also Shneiderman obtained from Communications of the ACM when they first recommended the layout:
We've never ever utilized them.
Yes, I (we) have actually come across them. Many thanks for asking! : -)
Seriously, we simply do not utilize them. We ususally maintain the diagraming to straightforward circulation diagrams which are usually less complicated to read and also recognize.
