Abstract The paper presents the functional visual language VisaVis. We focus on the new, flexible interaction strategy substitution, that brings ease of construction to visual programs and integrates higher-order functions smoothly. In order to illustrate the capabilities of the implemented prototype, comparisons with visual languages are given throughout the text. The programming environment is outlined as well as the compilation into the meta-language FFP preserving (data-) parallelism… CONTINUE READING
