Definitions for "Structured Programming"
Two mathematicians, Corrado Bohm and Guiseppe Jacopini proved that any computer program can be written with the three structured sequences, decisions and loops. This discovery led to the method of modern programming known as structured programming.
an expression used to categorize organized program design techniques. Structured programming adheres to a set of prescribed rules and standards used to produce a program. Its purpose is to provide programs that are easy to maintain and modify. It is simply one alternative to software engineering. Other alternatives include a 4GL, report writers, or program generators. (See Object Oriented Programming).
(IEEE) Any software development technique that includes structured design and results in the development of structured programs. See: structured design.
