How to write technical specs ?by dwiz (Pilgrim)
|on Oct 12, 2001 at 08:11 UTC||Need Help??|
Greetings fellow monks,
I thought this was more a general programming question than a Perl one. I have been reading this brilliant article on functional program specs. Doing what he says to do there has made my life a heap easier.BUT.....
I don't know how to write good technical specs.
How detailed do your specs have to be?
e.g.(Do you plan every sub?)
How do you start writing them?
Do you get a general outline or do you go over each task as they come up?
I have tried super search for past nodes on this but have come up empty.
Any insights, links or books that would help to start writing good technical specs would be greatly appreciated
