What do you do with an ST that comes only with Logo, if you don't
know anything about Logo? Play around is the answer and you may like
to load up Logo and type in these snippets.
First we have BOB which shows a most strange set of characters
actually built into the character set of the ST. Anyone you
TYPE CHAR 28 TYPE CHAR 29
TYPE CHAR 30 TYPE CHAR 31
Once typed in, you will get the message 'BOB defined'. Open up
the dialog window to full screen and type BOB [RETURN].
Now try SQUARES (a much longer programming exercise, wow!)
TO SQUARES :SIDE
FD :SIDE RIGHT 90
MAKE "SIDE :SIDE+2
:SIDE>80 [REV 1]
TO REV :ADD
MAKE "SIDE :SIDE - 2
BACK :SIDE LEFT 90
IF :SIDE<1 [MAKE "ADD :ADD+1 SQUARES :ADD]
When you have typed it you will get the messages SQUARES defined
and REV defined. Type SQUARES 4 [RETURN] and watch. Try changing the
line colour and background colour on the Settings. Typing CS will
clear the screen and activate your revised colours.
At least it's something to type in, but surely you can do better?
Any demos would be welcome.
