SpiroDraw04 - Spirograph(tm?) simulator of the spiral-drawing toy.
Simple, fun and addictive!
This is version 04. Fixes an ugly GADGET message bug and a couple
obscure bugs. Also improved usability of Random and Previous data
functions in the program.
No company, just an AMINET upload by "yours truly".
SpiroDraw04 was written by me, Chuck Kenney. My particulars
(address, etc.) are included in the user document in the archive.
SpiroDraw04 simulates the Wheels-and-Rings-and-Pens spirograph
drawing toy. Allows the user to specify different parameters for
the "Drawing Wheels, Drawing Rings", etc. The use of a computer
to generate the SpiroDraw designs actually enhances some of the
capabilities! SpiroDraw04 is mouse-driven (MENUs, GADGETs, etc.)
and provides an easy way to create one's own 'eye-candy'. It is
fun _and_ addictive! SpiroDraw04.lha also contains a very nice
freely distributable "screen-to-IFF" saver utility written by
Preben Nielsen (thanks, Preben) so that SpiroDraw designs can be
imported into "paint" programs. SpiroDraw04 is shareware but does
not nag the user in any way and all features are fully functional.
The user now has the ability in SpiroDraw04 to interrupt a
SpiroDraw design-in-progress with a Left Mouse Button click.
Moved the "Random" and "Last" (previous) data functions from
MENUs to the "Set Data..." user-input window so the user could
get immediate viual feedback on the "new" parameters that are
set by these two functions.
There are no special requirements that I know of.
SpiroDraw03 has been tested on an A2000HD (OS 2.1)
and an A1000 (OS 1.3).
SpiroDraw04.lha has just been uploaded to the AMINET site,
ftp.etsu.edu (220.127.116.11) and should soon be available on
all AMINET mirrors.
SpiroDraw04.lha is 57,195 bytes long.
The asking shareware price is the amount sent to me by my first
sharware contributor (Thanks go to Bill from Glendale, AZ!).
This requested shareware fee is $5.00 (US).
This program is freely distributable but is a copyrighted (1994)
shareware program by me, Chuck Kenney.
SpiroDraw04, and other programs in progress are coming out of my
basement as a result of the availability of a truly wonderful
"BASIC-but-much-more!" compiler, "ACE" by David Benn. I would
like to sincerely thank Mr. Benn for renewing my enthusiasm in
programming and for making it possible for me to make my programs
available to more than just my friends and immediately family!
