Can anyone help me with the pseudocode of an ATM machine? I have only taken Java and C++ courses before, and Visual Basic is easy but I've never had to write pseudocode for a program before.

I have already designed the interface. It has a label at the top which displays messages to the user. Under the label is a keypad of numbers 0-9 with "Clear" and "Exit" buttons. To the right of the keypad are four buttons: "Deposit", "Withdraw", "Inquire" and "Exit".

When the ATM machine program is started, it will display a message to the user that says something like "Welcome to the Bank ATM". The first thing that it does is ask for a 4-digit PIN from the customer. If the PIN is not four digits, it displays an error.If it is the correct PIN, the user is allowed to select from the following:

Deposit: Deposit an amount of money.

Withdraw: Withdraw an amount of money.

Inquire: Check what the balance is.

Exit: Exit..


I have browsed the internet for examples of ATM machines in Visual Basic but they're all from different versions of VB. Help is much appreciated. Thank you.

I am sorry.... I shouldnt have said code. I just want a general idea of the pseudocode for it? Im so used to Java and C++ that this is a little confusing. I know its something like

Start Program
User enters PIN
If =/ 4 digits
     Error
Else
     Bring to main menu
Deposit
Withdraw
Inquire
Exit

Its the last ones Im having a problem with (except Exit, self explanatory)
