Does anyone remember what the name is of the convention of brainstorming or precoding code?  

Let's say each person in the class was learning a different language.  The teacher would say, let's just write the procedure in _________.  

It would look something like this:

'OPEN THE CONNECTION

'FOR EACH ROW
 'GET THE ID
 'LOOKUP ANOTHER TABLE BASED ON THIS ID

'CLOSE THE CONNECTION

What is the name for this type of pre-coding convention!??  My buddy and I have a mental block.

Thanks,

MrHaight
