Hmmm, can't resist a little comment on it though...

I've had about 20 hours of college on this subject + also about 20 hours
practical. It was teached as being a (duh...) structured way to come
from a design to an actual program, complying with all "hot" software
engineering items. In practise, I learned very quickly, it's actually an
algorithm to turn a filter (!) specification into a COBOL program ;-)
The output wasn't suitable for other programming languages LOL. Also the
algorithm is actually so simple that if you'd really want to use it,
you'd better make a program generator from it ;-)

You ought to stay away from this crap, really ;-)
