THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN STRUCTURED LANGUAGE AND UNSTRUCTURED LANGUAGE: PROGRAMING LANGUAGE

INTRODUCTIONA program in a non-structured language usually consists of sequentially ordered commands, or statements, usually one in each line. The lines are usually numbered or may have labels: this allows the flow of execution to jump to any line in the program.Non-structured programming introduces basic control flow concepts such as loops, branches and jumps. Although there is no concept of procedures in the non-structured paradigm[citation needed], subroutines are allowed. Unlike a procedu...

ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF MICROBES ASSOCIATED WITH SPOILAGE CANNED FOOD SOLANUM LYCOPERSICUM

ABSTRACTLactic acid bacteria (LAB) associated with gaseous spoilage of modified – atmosphere – packaged, raw, tomato – marinated boiler meat striped were identified on the basis of a restriction fragment.Lactic acid bacteria are the dominant spoilage organisms in vacuum or modifies atmosphere – packaged meat products. Spoilage is mainly caused by lactobacillus. The activities of these organisms at stationary phase produce the compounds associated with sensory spoilage.The present stud...

EXPLORATION OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY POTENTIAL OF CITRUS MAXIMA (SHADDOCK) LEAF ON RAT.
