Difference between Structure Chart and Flow Chart

We are all familiar with the flow chart representation of a program. Flow chart is a convenient technique to represent the flow of control in a program. A structure chart differs from a flow chart in three principal ways:

• It is usually difficult to identify the different modules of the software from its flow chart representation.
• Data interchange among different modules is not represented in a flow chart.
• Sequential ordering of tasks inherent in a flow chart is suppressed in a structure chart.
