    Flowchart question: Classes

    I wanted to try something different this time so I decided to create a flowchart of the program first, but I'm not sure how to represent a class. My teacher never gor that far, only the basics, decisions and stuff. The program is going to have two classes, how do I represent the functions of each class, should I put the name on the class along with the name of the function?, can someone show me a Flowchart that uses classes? a link or something? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but everything I have learned, except for flowcharts, have been on my own, since the teachers over here don't know anything about programming and I can't do much about that. Thanks in advance.

    the way depicted there seems viable to work for a flow chart.

    Books & Software?

    Can someone recommend a book with a good programming-flowchart reference? It seems that once, a long time ago, in a land far away, I had a book with all of the symbols. (?)

    What flow-chart software do you use / recommend? Visio? Is there a more economical program? (I only do a little programming at work, and flowcharts aren't "required", so I'd have to pay for it myself.)

    I've only used flowcharts when I needed to figure-out some algorithm, or some small part of a program. So, I've drawn them by hand, and everything is just a box.

    Thanks

    Did you check Amazon for the books? Check them out and read the reviews. Anyway, I use WizFlow Flowcharter that's the only program I have ever used, it's simple , easy to use and it gets the job done, check the trial version out, maybe you'll like it too.

    Thanks!

    Wiz Flow looks just about right. No, darnok, I didn't search Amazon... I'm not looking for a whole freekin' book on flow charting! I was thinking of maybe one chapter with a page or two of symbols. ...Like the table of schematic symbols in every beginning electronics book.

    UML looks like overkill for my programs... and I don't want to write them twice! OK, OK, OK... I'm a hardware engineer and I do understand the importance of planning and design. But, that level of structure just doesn't apply to either my current work or hobby programming.

    And, I guess you're right, StinkyRyan, I could look-up the symbols on the net. And, although I like having some handy reference books on my bookshelf, I wouldn't want to buy a whole book just for a page of flow-chart symbols... if there was nothing else useful in the book.
