Write programs by just drawing something

All has become past. Running life, with non-stop writings of Basic, Pascal and C programs and being the target for several kinds of scolding. The program will become angry if you put something in capital letters. Or if you forget a period, the entire program will stand still. It will display syntax error message innocently to test our tolerance limit. Today, every thing has been made easy. Several editors are available free of cost, with colorful facilities such as correction of errors and display of syntax, all this being accessible right at the time of typing itself.

For example, look at Notepad++.

This simplifies the following languages and give them to us : C C++ Java C# XML HTML PHP CSS makefile ASCII art (extension .nfo) doxygen ini file batch file Javascript ASP VB/VBS SQL Objective-C RC resource file Pascal Perl Python Lua TeX TCL Assembler Ruby Lisp Scheme Properties Diff Smalltalk Postscript VHDL Ada Caml AutoIt KiXtart Matlab Verilog Haskell InnoSetup and CMake.

Another editor of this type is PSPad.
This simplifies the following: Pascal, C/C++, INI, HTML, XML, PHP ,CSS, XML, XHTML , JScript, VBScript, MySQL, MS-Dos, Perl C++, Cobol, MS-Dos batch, CSS, Forth, Fortran, FoxPro, HTML, XHTML, INI, Inno Setup, Java, JavaScript, KixStart, Object Pascal, Perl, PHP, Python, RSS, SQL, TCL/TK, Unix ShellScript, VBScript, Visual Basic, X86 assembler.

To challenge all this has come the visual programming language. That is, you need not write any textual matter. It is enough if you draw picture using the mouse. These help mostly to program robots. For example, it is enough if you move the hand block of the robot picture in the computer monitor to make the robot move its hand. Robot will obey this. Similarly, to enable the robot to carry out several activities, it is enough to move the corresponding block with the mouse, as needed. Our robot will obey all this. Nowadays, robots of Lego brand come only with VPL facility like this. In fact, they use the VPI, called, LabVIEW. Like this, robots such as Mindscript and Microsoft’s MVPL - Microsoft Robotics Studio Visual language are very popular.

Don’t confuse this with Microsoft’s Visual Studio or Visual Basic. Visual Studio is only a visual programming environment; it is not a visual programming language.

If you drag and drop the robot from bedroom to the washing-room with the mouse pointer on the monitor, it will simply go there and start washing.
