When a flowchart is converted to a target programming language, the system starts in the [Program] section. This section allows the developer to insert the Main Function, additional functions, function headers, and other needed definitions. As a result, this section makes heavy use of flags.

Java Example
Text = import java.util.*;
= import java.lang.Math;
= public class JavaApplication {{
= private static Scanner input = new Scanner(; | input | 1
= private static Random random = new Random(); | random | 1
= -->MAIN | | 1
= -->FUNCTIONS | | 1
= | tofixed | 1
= private static String toFixed(double value, int digits) {{ | tofixed | 1
= return String.format("%." + digits + "f", value); | tofixed | 2
= } | tofixed | 1
= }

In the example above, flags are used to, optionally, create declarations for Scanner and Random if the program uses the Input Statement and the Random Function respectively. In addition, if the ToFixed Function is used, the template will create a local function called toFixed() that will implement that logic.

Text Key

The text key is used to generate the syntax of the main program. It doesn't contain any fields.

Please see the Global Flags page

To insert the While Statement's block, use a single line containing the following special codes. If you want to change the indentation of the block, make sure to specify the indent after the second pipe |.

Special value What it does
-->HEADERS Inserts function headers. These will be generated using the [Function Header] section.
-->MAIN Inserts the main function. This is defined in [Main Function].
-->FUNCTIONS Inserts the programs functions. This does not include Main. These are defined in [Function].
