hhmm.... work with your mindflow, if you need a day or two to try
ideas, mull it over, etc, walk around.. One of my most successfull
systems is still running since 1983, survived y2k, 2 OS changes (yes,
from rsx-11m to VMS), 5 hardware upgrades (involved changing timing
loops), 3 generations of ICU monitoring monitors, and it's still not
spagetti code... but, I had 3 months to mull things over and peudocode
it before the hardware came in.
try Structured Systems Analysis, author forgotten. black paperback,
'bout late '70's..
