Just based on what I've seen around the place, you have the chance to break some ground here. I have run across a few well-intentioned efforts such as eerr what's it called... Visual Smalltalk or Smarttalk or something. Agonisingly painful. You had to draw lines between boxes to indicate actions, or function calls, and the boxes represented functions or variables. It took a long time to do simple tasks, although I could see how it could be a useful tool for some work.

Then there was supposedly a windowing system called NEWS that had a cool code representation program that drew your code out with symbols for different things like variables and functions. I saw a screen dump and the program looked like a weird heiroglyph - very cool.

If anyone knows of this program, I would be grateful for a copy, although I guess I could program it myself in my copious free time (hah!)

I also found a two dimensional programming language. It was on a page with lots of malformed programming languages such as brainfuck and dis.

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
