In the article, "Thoughts on Language Design", Steele (2007) suggests that structured
programming techniques may not be necessary or even as helpful today as they were in the past.
Discuss the author's reasoning and explain why you agree or disagree with his perspective.
The keyword or phrase that jumps out was the “tree of binary decisions.” The if-then-else
system in programming languages works on a binary system, which allows it to process two
different outcomes. However, there are several situations that one has to directly process more
than two outcomes.
Basically, what I was able to understand from the article was that it is trying to make
computer programming in general more proficient in pragmatic control design and performance.
Moreover, based on the article alone, I don’t think one should throw away structured
programming techniques because the article discussed the concept of tree of binary decision as a
working implementation in computer programming.
