What is Pseudocode

Pseudocode is a compact and informal high-level description of a program using the conventions of a programming language, but intended more for humans.

Pseudocode is not an actual programming language. So it cannot be compiled into an executable program. It uses short terms or simple English language syntaxes to write code for programs before it is actually converted into a specific programming language.

And there is no pseudocode standard syntax and so at times it becomes slightly confusing when writing Pseudocode and so let us understand pseudo code with an example.

  • INPUT – indicates a user will be inputting something
  • OUTPUT – indicates that an output will appear on the screen
  • WHILE – a loop (iteration that has a condition at the beginning)
  • FOR – a counting loop (iteration)
  • REPEAT – UNTIL – a loop (iteration) that has a condition at the end
  • IF – THEN – ELSE – a decision (selection) in which a choice is made
  • any instructions that occur inside a selection or iteration are usually indented

Some Keywords That Should be Used

For looping and selection, The keywords that are to be used include

  • Do While…EndDo;
  • Do Until…Enddo;
  • Case…EndCase;
  • If…Endif;
  • Call … with (parameters);
  • Call; Return ….; Return;
  • When;

Always use scope terminators for loops and iteration.As verbs, use the words

  • Generate,
  • Compute,
  • Process, etc.

Words such as

  • set,
  • reset,
  • increment,
  • compute,
  • calculate,
  • add,
  • sum,
  • multiply,
  • … print,
  • display,
  • input,
  • output,
  • edit,
  • test , etc.

with careful indentation tend to foster desirable pseudocode.

Do not include data declarations in your pseudocode.
