Section 4.3 Pseudocode

• Pseudocode (p. 103) is an informal language that helps you develop algorithms without having to worry about the strict details of Java language syntax.

• The pseudocode we use in this book is similar to everyday English—it’s convenient and user friendly, but it’s not an actual computer programming language. You may, of course, use your own native language(s) to develop your own pseudocode.

• Pseudocode helps you “think out” a program before attempting to write it in a programming language, such as Java.

• Carefully prepared pseudocode can easily be converted to a corresponding Java program.
