RAPTOR is a problem-solving flowchart tool. It is an interpreter visual tool that enables us to generate executable flowcharts. RAPTOR is an acronym and stands for Rapid Algorithmic Prototyping Tool for Ordered Reasoning. The flowchart tool is developed using C# and A# programming languages.
Technically, A RAPTOR Flowchart is a connected directed graph of RAPTOR symbols to visually show the program flow of control.
RAPTOR supports multiple editions. To know more:

There are multiple ways we can launch the RAPTOR tool on Windows.
RAPTOR flowchart tool requires minimum syntax and is simple to use. Students prefer using flowcharts to express their algorithms and are more successful in creating algorithms using RAPTOR than using a traditional language or writing/drawing flowcharts without RAPTOR.

There are different modes in the RAPTOR flowchart. Learn more about RAPTOR modes:
A Variable is the name of the storage location used to store a value. It is called a variable because we can change the value in the flowchart. Learn how to use variables in a RAPTOR flowchart:

Flowchart execution is the process of running the flowchart. During the run, the flowchart takes the input data, reads the files, etc Process the input data and provides meaningful information as the flowchart output.

Comments add more value to your flowcharts. They make them readable and understandable to others. They can be your friends, colleagues, instructor, etc.
Raptor flowcharts can generate source code too in Programming languages like C++, Java, VB, etc
Sub chart & Procedure
Sub charts make the flow charts modular. They help to break down large flowcharts into small manageable charts. Subcharts the basics of modular programming techniques.
Abstract and break large complex flowcharts into modules using procedures. Procedure and Functions provide an abstraction to the caller. They hide the inner details, logic, and working details from the caller.
