Pseudocode helps computer programmers in writing computer algorithms.
Pseudocode is a way of describing written instructions as a series of English-like sentences. It has a similar purpose to flowcharts - to describe the logic of a program.
pseudocode is often referred to as a syntactical representation of a program and it doesn't have a strict syntax since it only represents the way we're thinking so it should leave very little for the
Imagination So it's readable for most people
It’s important to understand that pseudocode is not a programming language.
it's actually a learning and reasoning tool used to help programmers understand and write code.
so it's language agnostic, it's something that you write that is not an actual code in any programming language but that if anyone were to read it it would be very clear to what is happening or what steps are being taken.
So what pseudocode actually enables us to do is to grab a simple set of instructions that are written in plain English and eventually translate that into a program that can be executed.
So hopefully this gave you a better understanding on what is pseudocode, how to write pseudocode and how to use it
