The Interface Construction Set

  • David N. Smith
Part of the Languages and Information Systems book series (LISS)

Abstract

The Interface Construction Set (InterGONS) contains both a visual data flow language and an environment for building data flow programs and presentation views of such programs. These presentation views are interactive computer interfaces which model applications, implement functions directly, or interface to external devices.

Keywords

Execution Model Visual Language Menu Item Presentation View Visual Programming 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
