The two guides which need to be produced in any SD are the User Guide and The Technical Guide.
By having good documentation it means people can go back to the code at a later date, read it, and understand what the code is trying to do. It is important the documentation is good so this is the case, as it may not be the same developers who wrote the code that will go back to amend it.

a) The program may succesfully compile, but fail to run when the user enters incorrect data, which the program has not been designed to handle, especially if it has no error trapping codded into the program.
b) The program code should be maintaniable so that varius coders can look at the code and easily amend any anomalies or errors within the code.

I said sorry at the end and it was clearly a joke. I can't imagine anyone doing Higher Computing to be confused by what SD means. Plus, it seemed that Rocky had had his query answered.
Lighten up but I am sorry if I have offended anyone
