What is a Pseudo code?
A Pseudo code is an informal description of the operating and functional principles of computer programs or other algorithms. The purpose of a pseudo code is to comprehensively portray the conventional programming language and the key principles of an algorithm. 
Some examples of Pseudo code:
  • IF is often portrayed by a diamond shape.
  • ELSE means two options. 
  • SET GRADE COUNTER indicates different variables
  • INPUT means get a value
  • LOOP Decisions often occur inside the loop. e.g 'while grade counter is less than or equal to ten' 
  • PROTEST Repetition 
  • TOTAL means being a container for storage. This will often commence with little to nothing, beginning with variables.
  • POST TEST Repetition.
  • Always test algorithm with real data. 
  • There is no standard writing
  • Average is not restricted
  • For multiple alternatives within a flow chart, use chains to link them
  • Layout of an pseudo code:
First two lines set up the variable.
Line 5 builds up a count
Line 6 is utilized to stop the loop after 10.
