Flowgorithm is a graphical authoring tool which allows users to write and execute programs using flowcharts. The approach is designed to emphasize the algorithm rather than the syntax of a specific programming language. The flowchart can be converted to several major programming languages. Flowgorithm was created at Sacramento State University.
Origin of name
Supported Programming Languages
Flowgorithm can interactively translate flowchart programs into source code written in other programming languages. As the user steps through their flowchart, the related code in the translated program is automatically highlighted. The following programming languages are supported:
Besides English, Flowgorithm supports other spoken languages. These are:
- Chinese (Simplified & Traditional)
- Spanish - Mexican and Castilian dialects
Flowgorithm combines the classic flowchart symbols and those used by SDL diagrams. The color of each shape is shared by the associated generated code and the console window. The colors can be changed to several built-in themes.
