What is Structured Programming?

Structured programming (sometimes known as modular programming) is a programming paradigm that facilitates the creation of programs with readable code and reusable components. All modern programming languages support structured programming, but the mechanisms of support, like the syntax of the programming languages, varies.

Where modules or elements of code can be reused from a library, it may also be possible to build structured code using modules written in different languages, as long as they can obey a common module interface or application program interface (API) specification. However, when modules are reused, it’s possible to compromise data security and governance, so it’s important to define and enforce a privacy policy controlling the use of modules that bring with them implicit data access rights.

Structured programming encourages dividing an application program into a hierarchy of modules or autonomous elements, which may, in turn, contain other such elements. Within each element, code
