Graphical Programming Language (GPL)
InfoScan’s Graphical Programming Language (GPL) greatly simplifies the creation and maintenance of process control. The graphical nature of the GPL makes the creation of process controls more intuitive.
Function “blocks” are selected from a toolbar and dropped onto the screen, and lines are drawn to link inputs and outputs. The GPL shows as much information as possible graphically so users can easily see what each function is doing, with in-depth information about each block only one click away.
The GPL features a set of simple building blocks that can be combined together to achieve more complicated operations. The GPL also includes some specialized function blocks that would be difficult to implement otherwise.
No programming experience is necessary to use GPL. Once a user is familiar with the basics of the blocks, they can start creating control sequences. And while GPL is easy to use, it also has many customizable options for more advanced users.
