Control structure

Control structure definition

Control structure refers to a programming language feature that allows a programmer to control the flow of execution of a program. It allows a program to make decisions based on certain conditions or to perform certain actions repeatedly based on a set of conditions.

Types of control structure:

  • Selection. It allows a program to evaluate the condition and execute different code depending on whether the condition is true or false.
  • Repetition. It allows a program to repeat a set of instructions a certain number of times or until a certain condition is met.
  • Jump. It allows a program to interrupt the normal flow of execution by skipping over certain sections of code and transferring control to a different part of the program.

Control structure benefits:

  • Code reusability. It reduces the amount of code that needs to be written, which can save time and improve the maintainability of the code.
  • Efficiency. It can help reduce the runtime of a program and improve its performance.
  • Flexibility. This allows code to adapt to different situations or requirements, making the program more robust and versatile.
  • Error handling. It can be used to handle errors and exceptions in a program.
  • Code optimization. It can help optimize code by avoiding unnecessary computations or operations.
