Automated Checkout Program

A local department store hires you to write an automated checkout program to expedite customers in a hurry. The checkout line can only accept five items for any one purchase.

Please provide a pseudocode and flowchart for the program that follows the guidelines of good program design, like meaningful variable names and thoroughly commented code.
