Indeed, knowing what the program is to do is often the problem.

efforts because we are still undecided what they are, especially the
latter.  Why not just figure out what you want the computer to do and
program it?

superior.  Figuring out what that means, in terms of stuff that can be
directly coded, is a large part of the challenge.
