1- The quality of documentation produced for a software package will affect the ease of maintenace.
(a) What 2 guides should be produced a part of this documentation?
(b) Explain why the quality of the documentation will affect the ease of maintenance.

2- (a) Describe a situation where the program might compile successfully but still fail to run.
(b) Explain why its important that the program code is maintanable.

Okay I'll do an answer for Question 1, and someone else can do Q2.

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.

Question 2:

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.

SD stands for Secure Digital and is very useful. My mp3 player has a slot for an SD card and it makes it very expandable

chill pill? You usually say that to someone that has a temper or over reacts to something.

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.
