Logic Flow Chart App

Hi Bob,

Emboldened by others, I submit my non-answer to your question:

I usually start at my whiteboard with either traditional flowcharting or 
Warnier/Orr diagrams, and then go to paper and pencil if I need to drill 
down very far. If the decision tree is very complex, I'll sometimes put 
together a truth table. Somewhere along the way I start pseudocoding and 
prototyping (top-down if possible), which leads to my bad ideas being 
shown for what they are, and the good ones coming to the surface (at 
least in theory - sometimes the bad ideas are so technically compelling 
they make it into the code).

In the past I used OmniGraffle on the Mac but tended to get distracted 
by the art of chart creation rather than staying on task.

I find the most important part of the whole process is to correctly 
identify the functional goal and the problem that prevents it from 
happening. (Of course you have to define "correctly" too.) Without 
those, it doesn't much matter what you do. You can use an Etch-a-Sketch.

When I have 3 or 4 conditions that can be true or false, affecting whether or not I even check for conditions further down the line, I get lost pretty quickly. If I could visualize the overall conditional logic apart from the code I execute it would really help me I think.
