Generalised structured programming sytem that expresses all structures in terms of do, if, repeat, else, and also, as well as the "sentence markers" { and }

All structural extents are indicated with whitespace

Draws on tradition of executable notation and flowcharts (Nassi-Scheidermann, FLowcharts etc)to produce a matching kind of charting system, the Boxchart.
