visual programming environment

Software which allows the use of visual expressions (such as graphics, drawings, animation or icons) in the process of programming. These visual expressions may be used as graphical interfaces for textual programming languages. They may be used to form the syntax of new visual programming languages leading to new paradigms such as programming by demonstration or they may be used in graphical presentations of the behaviour or structure of a program.
