Abstract:

A promising area of application for recently developed computer graphics techniques is computer programming. Two important considerations in using an interactive graphics system for drawing programs are (1) the form of a pictorial programming notation and (2) methods for making a computer execute the program once drawn. These topics are discussed in the context of an experimental graphical programming system running on the Lincoln Laboratory TX-2 Computer. This system uses a block notation for programs and can execute the drawn program with an interpreter. Improved graphical input languages for drawing programs and program notations which combine appropriate features of pictorial and written languages are needed before applications in this area are practical. The benefits to be expected from a graphical approach to programming include (1) automatic documentation, (2) debugging assistance, and (3) natural expression of parallel processes. (Author).
