Interesting. So essentially you are suggesting the best way to start would be to write a small and simple program and then build that up to the large program by adding on a bit at a time.

I've noticed that a lot of programmers disagree on this point. Some suggest the best way to do it is to work on the big picture "on paper" and then keeping refining that
until the final code "falls out".
I've never seen that method actually in practice, but I have an open mind.
