Skeleton (computer science)
From Seo Wiki - Search Engine Optimization and Programming Languages
Skeleton programming is a style of computer programming based on simple high-level program structures and so called dummy code. Program skeletons resemble pseudocode, but allows parsing, compilation and testing of the code.
Dummy code is inserted in a program skeleton to simulate processing and avoid compilation error messages. It may involve empty function declarations, or functions that return a correct result only for a simple test case where the expected response of the code is known.
Skeleton programming facilitates a top-down design approach, where a partially-functional system with complete high-level structures is designed and coded, and this system is then progressively expanded to fulfill the requirements of the project.
Program skeletons are sometimes used for high-level descriptions of algorithms.
A program skeleton may also be utilized as a template that reflects syntax and structures commonly used in a wide class of problems.
