Top-down, bottom-up, and structured programming

The process of designing and evolving a programming system cannot be characterizedas either top-down or bottom-up or any other well-structured process. The result, however, is a well-structured program. Since both approaches have the same goal (i.e.; to produce. a highly structured program composed of well-integrated pieces) and follow the same basic philosphy (i.e., that program composition proceeds in well throught-out systematic steps), either approach or a combination of the two (which is usually what happens) is compatible with a structured programming philosophy.
