Description

The goal of the program visualization workstation is to help programmers form clear and correct mental images of a program’s structure and functions through graphic displays of program code. This is a prototype workstation developed on three screens with the intention of combining all three screens into one high resolution screen. The main components are: menus for overall system function controls; library of building blocks, templates and kits for the user to assemble into system diagrams; and a work space for system diagrams. Shown opposite page:

1. Three screen workstations with library on left screen, workspace on center screen, and function menus on right screen.
