    The increasing influence of visual technology on language environments that has resulted from the increasing availability of workstations is discussed. An evolution that began with the relatively straightforward translation of textual techniques into corresponding visual techniques and has progressed to uses of visual techniques that have no natural parallel using purely textural techniques is tra...

    The authors explore the graphical representation of objects and processes as a means for understanding programs consisting of large numbers of concurrent processes. Their goal is to establish a technical foundation for research into the monitoring and debugging of large-scale concurrent programs. They explain declarative visualization and introduce some shared-data-space concepts and notation by m... View full abstract»

    The authors examine a special software development environment called the Parallel Programming and Instrumentation Environment (PIE). PIE is designed to develop performance-efficient parallel and sequential computations. Following an explanation of PIE's general theory and features, PIE's visualization tools are used to isolate and repair the parallelism problem of an eight-process computation. Tw...

    The structural description, construction, and evolution of software systems using the Conic graphs environment are discussed. The configuration programming concepts embodied in conic are described and illustrated by the example of a patient monitoring system. The characteristics of the ConicDraw graphic workstation are examined. Browsing and animation extensions are described.<> View full abstract»
