4.3 Pseudocode

Pseudocode is an informal language that helps you develop algorithms. It's similar to everyday English; it's convenient and user friendly, but not an actual computer programming language. The pseudocode we present is particularly useful for developing algorithms that will be converted to structured portions of Visual Basic programs.

Pseudocode programs are not executed on computers. Rather, they help you "think out" a program before writing it in a programming language. You can easily convert a carefully prepared pseudocode program to a corresponding Visual Basic program.

Pseudocode normally describes only statements representing the actions that occur after you convert a program from pseudocode to Visual Basic and run the program on a computer. Such actions might include input, output or calculations.
