What is Flow chart?

A flowchart is a pictorial representation depicting the logic flow of steps in a program, task plan, or work procedure. A flowchart is a visual representation that illustrates the sequence of operations to be performed to get the solution of a problem. Flowcharts are generally drawn in the early stages of formulating problem solutions. Flowcharts facilitate communication between technical and non-technical people. For example, they play a vital role in the programming of a problem and are quite helpful in understanding the logic of complicated problems. Once the flowchart is drawn, it becomes easy to write the program in any programming language. Often we see how flowcharts are helpful in explaining the solution to others.
