Structured programming is BEST described as a technique that:
provides knowledge of program functions to other programmers via peer reviews.
reduces the maintenance time of programs by the use of small-scale program modules.
makes the readable coding reflect as closely as possible the dynamic execution of the program.
controls the coding and testing of the high-level functions of the program in the development
A characteristic of structured programming is smaller, workable units. Structured programming has
evolved because smaller, workable units are easier to maintain. Structured programming is a style
of programming which restricts the kinds of control structures. This limitation is not crippling. Any
program can be written with allowed control structures. Structured programming is sometimes
referred to as go-to-less programming, since a go-to statement is not allowed. This is perhaps the
most well known restriction of the style, since go-to statements were common at the time
structured programming was becoming more popular. Statement labels also become
unnecessary, except in languages where subroutines are identified by labels.
