Title A Visual Programming Environment for the Construction of Block Diagrams
Date 1989-04
Description Visual programming is a broad term which is used to describe those languages which use graphics to construct visual representations of algorithms, documentation, and program execution. This thesis discusses the benefits and disadvantages of using a visual approach to programming. VIPER, the visual interactive programming environment for the construction of block diagrams is described and an example is presented. VIPER provides techniques for stripping away those visual characteristics which are of least importance or interest. These abstraction techniques allow one to easily concentrate on sections of interest by eliminating unnecessary detail which help to control and minimize visual clutter.
