Description

The Larch Environment is a visual interactive programming environment for Jython/Python. Its purpose is to make programming more visual. To this end, protocols for presenting objects visually have been devised. A programming environment, that builds on the idea of the standard visual console, allows a programmer to experiment with ideas, and develop programs at the same time. Additionally, a way of embellishing source code with visual content is presented.
