  • I would have to disagree with the statement that everything serious is done textually. I have done quite a bit of work with Labview over the past 10 years and have seen projects with 1000+ hours of development, involving multiple developers, that when finished ran complex systems of computers and other hardware. I am not saying that a solution using a text based language could would not have been plausible, but the development of the project did not seem to be severely limited just because the language was a "visual" programming language.

    That being said, you are correct that there are definite limitations to visual languages, including Labview. There are many things that can be done in C, C++, etc (which I use more frequently than Labview) that simply do not lend themselves to a visual programming solution. I just thought it was worth saying that some serious projects can be accomplished with a visual language without (at least in my opinion) being severely limited by the development language.

No public wish lists :(
