WireLisp is a language that incorporates both procedural and graphic constructs for describing the structure of complex circuits. This combination provides both the clarity of a graphic representation and the expressiveness of a procedural description. A description is given of how this is done in a conceptually simple way be representing procedural information graphically. WireLisp is built on Lisp which allows the designer to extend the language with arbitrary functions. WireLisp can be used to generate a variety of different target output descriptions, and allows the incorporation of other kinds of descriptions such as behavioral and physical descriptions. WireLisp is implemented in T Lisp and has been used to describe complex (130000 transistor) VLSI chip design.<>
