    hi friends
    i need some guidance, i new to learn embedded, any other alternative method for doing embedded programming, because i cannot able to learn embedded c, or otherwise alternative software available to generate embedded c programs ,easily to convert logic flow chart to programs like l(ab-view )etc
    please share.

    Are you asking if there's an alternative to C for an embedded system? Please be more specific.

    So, you want something at a high level (not assembly code), but not have to generate lines of [any type of] code.

    Have you considered a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)? There is some programming involved, but it is based in "logic decisions", not a programming language, per se. Here is an introduction to PLCs:
    https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Introductory_PLC_Programming

    Note: the PLC solution will most likely be more expensive.

    Can you share what your project is? You really shouldn't be afraid of C code.

    Lots of such tools. Ladder logic is one. And the latest psoc from cypress is programmed fully graphically......

    Google something called "Flowcode." I have never used it but have seen some who have. It seems to be something exactly like what you are looking for.

    For what purpose do you want this alternative method of doing embedded programming? Maybe you could use Swift.

    Some systems use alternative programming languages and methods. I'm not an Arduino user, so I'm speaking out of school, but it uses an, as I understand, simpler and easier to learn programming language.
