ALEX is an experimental language for high-level parallel programming. It is a testbed for exploring various non-traditional ways of expressing algorithmic ideas, making extensive use of high-resolution color graphics. The language itself is not a programming language in the traditional sense, since there is no lexical syntax. This paper discusses the basic design of the ALEX user interface.
