An experimental solely icon-based visual programming language has been designed and implemented and is reported here. After the implementation and testing of version 7 a thorough usability testing procedure was pursued before the implementation of version 8. This VPL is specifically designed to not use any connection lines in the visual presentation and to provide a fixed but resizable visual format to avoid the time-consuming visual rearrangement tasks in other icon-based VPLs. The language was also designed to be generic for building applications based upon any chosen system library.
