I need help with "Predefined Process" shape
« on: December 05, 2008, 03:08:29 PM »
 ??? 

In Basic Flowchart Shapes,  what is the difference between "Process"  and   "Predefined Process" ?

Can you give an example?

They are just the result of badly named shapes.

The Process shape is really just any processing step, often called Task
The Predefined Process is more usually called a Subroutine or Function.
