Colour Beads Visual Representation of Compositional Relational Programs
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of 2013 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC), IEEE conference proceedings, 2013, 131-134 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Building on a compositional relational programming language Combilog, code visualization with a motivation of flexible practical applications is explored. Following from earlier work based on Higraph diagram formalizations, a new coloured and human perception-centric iteration of visual representation is introduced, and its effects on understanding compositional relational programs are analysed by means of a user study. Results showed that visuals helped participants to solve coderelated questions 46% faster with 69% less errors.
