Raptor is a visual programming language for teaching algorithm design. It helps students learn programming concepts through graphical representation, which can then be directly transformed to source code. The program uses simple syntax and structure, making it accessible to educators and students new to computer science. Raptor provides real-time feedback during the creation of flowcharts, allowing for analysis and improvement of an algorithm before translating it into a textual programming language like Python or C++.
