I have the "Headfirst" book and am up to page 98. I am looking for a simple pseudocode diagrammer(not a UML diagrammer or anything fancy like that).
I've thought of using a word processor, but I like the brackets so you can see what if goes with what else, etc. Word processors can't do this.
I can't seem to find anything suitable. If anyone knows of a download I can use, please write back.
Best Regards,
John

Hmmm, Ken Orr & Associates marketed one in the 80s that did Warnier-Orr diagrams transformed to outlines. That would be hard to find now. Actually, it was a pretty simple outline tool and used indenting depth to indicate control flow instead of brackets. Hmmm, maybe not, the product was called Brackets.
Anyhow, any outline tool could help you manage indentation. MS Word has an outline view, but I think it hurts to use it. Any other outliners out there? ThinkTank is also long dead, sorry to say.
Hey, this might be a great case tool project. I have drag & drop tree views so you can move nodes around freely, so I know it's not impossible. Could be fun!

I'm not exactly sure what you have in mind, but it seems that if you're just looking for something to preserve indentation that most text editors can handle that these days (not notepad, Word, or WordPad though). TextPad, UltraEdit, even the old DOS edit (type "edit" from a DOS prompt) preserves indentation.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
