Oh, well for large programs (which was not what I was writing for), I will draw big boxes and put labels and arrows, or do something so that I can understand what my data will look like and where it will go. I rarely put down anything about my code though, perhaps which type of algorithm I plan on using. Or in the case of something more custom, I'll detail that in pseudo code, (C-ish), or mostly correct/abbreviated perl.

But as I said, I mainly concern myself with the data structures. As they say: "Show me your flow charts and I will continue to be confused, but let me see your data structures, then, aha!" -- I know, and so should most every programmer, the how to access most any data structure. The most important part of my program is choosing which one I'll use.

Gosh, we all are good at continuing a nice flowing-topic converstation, no?
