# Variable affectations
You could describe variable affectation in different ways.
int a = 1 int a := 1 let int a = 1 int a <- 1
# No type
a = 1 a := 1 let a = 1 a <- 1
As long as the function name, return statement and parameters are clear, you're fine.
def incr n return n + 1
let incr(n) = n + 1
function incr (n) return n + 1
are all quite clear, so you may use them. Try not to be ambiguous with a variable affectation
Pseudocode is by definition informal. This topic is meant to describe ways to translate language-specific code into something everyone with a programming background can understand.
Pseudocode is an important way to describe an algorithm and is more neutral than giving a langugage-specific implementation. Wikipedia often uses some form of pseudocode when describing an algorithm
Some things, like if-else type conditions are quite easy to write down informally. But other things, js-style callbacks for instance, may be hard to turn into pseudocode for some people.
This is why these examples may prove useful
