The FlowStone of Wisdom
More than a visual programming tool with a pretty (inter)face
Visual programming implies creating programs by manipulating functions graphically rather than by typing in text. In many visual programming languages (VPLs) screen objects (often boxes) represent functions interconnected by arrows, lines or arcs representing data relations. A well-known VPL is LabVIEW, but there exist many more. One of them is FlowStone, a VPL with a twist.
