Algorithm specification

When creating code, it is necessary to be able to implement three specific algorithms:

  • input validation
  • running total within loop
  • traversing a 1D array

In this guide, the algorithms are exemplified using Reference Language.

Reference Language is a language created specifically for Computing courses in Scotland. Reference language is not pseudocode.

It is necessary to be able to read and understand Reference Language. It is also necessary to be able to implement the algorithms using one of:

  • LiveCode
  • Python
  • Visual Basic
  • True Basic
  • another high-level language
