In table-driven programming, a programmer specifies program logic in an array (also known as a table) instead of coding procedural control statements. In this presentation, Ted Holt begins by contrasting procedural and table-driven programming. Next he walks through an example that demonstrates that table-driven programming can solve problems that procedural programming can’t. Finally, Ted illustrates the power of table-driven programming by sharing a utility he developed using table-driven techniques.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn how table-driven programming differs from procedural programming.
2. Learn how to implement table-driven program in an RPG program.
3. Learn when table-driven programming is appropriate.
