Step-wise refinement is a technique for software development using a top-down, structured approach to solving a problem. It allows the developer to use a controlled method of developing an algorithm that will eventually solve a given problem.

Basically, step-wise refinement involves the use of a generalized approach to a problem, perhaps written in pseudo-code. The next step would be to fill in one of the holes in the code. The pseudo-code describes a general, non-specific way to solve the problem deferring the actual decisions until last minute. That way the developer can assign place-holders in the logic until they are actually needed.

Then, each step involves the use of refining (adding the logic) a step in the development of the algorithm to make it more specific, doing so one step at at time.

When everything has been refined you have a complete program; however, it takes multiple steps (step-wise refining) to get to that point where a complete, syntactically correct program emerges.

What is Data Structures?

  Data structures   The data structures are user defined data types specifically created for the manipulation of data in a predefined manner. Examples of data structu

What is top down stepwise refinement in c?

It is a designing method, but has nothing to do with the C language. No its a very useful technique of C programming In top down stepwise refinement we start with a psuedocod

What is data structure?

A data structure is a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently.

What are the linear and nonlinear data structure?

Linear DataStructures are having linear relationships in storage like stacks,queue,linked list Non Linear DataStructures are having non linear and non sequential relationshi

What are the Tools and techniques of Data analysis?

There are many tools for data analysis: R language, SAS, SPSS, Excel, SQL, esProc, Matlab, etc. I just list a some. For techniques of data analysis, I think that depends on di

What is data structure why is an array called a data structure which are the other data structures?

A data structure is a collection of more than one elementary item, in some kind of aggregate organization. An array is a type of structure where more than one item of the sa

Static data structure and dynamic data structure?

A static data structure is any structure where the size of the structure is known at compile time and can therefore be statically allocated within the program's own data segme

Application of stack in data structure?

One way to emulate a stack with a data structure is with a singly linked list wherein you can only add and remove nodes from the head or tail of the list (depending on impleme

Type of data structure for storing data?

  It depends on what kind of data. If you want to store integer numbers use short, int, long. If you have numbers with decimal point use float, and double. If you want to

What is a data structure?

 Answer   In computer science, a data structure is a way of storing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently. Often a carefully chosen data structure will
