sequence(1) One of the three basic logic structures in computer programming. The other two logic structures are selection and loop.
In a sequence structure, an action, or event, leads to the next ordered action in a predetermined order. The sequence can contain any number of actions, but no actions can be skipped in the sequence. The program, when run, must perform each action in order with no possibility of skipping an action or branching off to another action.
All logic problems in programming can be solved by forming algorithms using only the three logic structures, and they can be combined in an infinite number of ways. The more complex the computing need, the more complex the combination of structures.
(2)A structured series of shots or scenes with a beginning, middle and end. The term sequence can be applied to video, audio, or graphics.
