Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19907328A1] The invention relates to a method enabling visual programming of a computer. All essential elements of an imperative, object-oriented programming language such as C++ can be visualized with the program modules cited in the invention. For example, a sorting algorithm is shown in Figure 8A. Other higher program units such as classes, modules, system planes up to overall systems can be visualized in a comprehensive, integrated overall representation. Said overall representation can be managed in an object-oriented database and can be converted into different graphic representations or also automatically into text source code if necessary. The method allows for the use of CAD development methods in the program drafts.
