When the program has loaded you will be given a title screen where you can choose one of the following things: "E" - This will clear the screen and then draw a set of example spirals. "O" - This option allows you to design your own screens with as many spirals as you like on one screen at once. First you are asked to choose a colour (1-7), although I don't think there is anything wrong with using colours above 7 to create different effects. Then you will be asked for an X and a Y co-ordinate. This will give the point for the spiral to start drawing from. Then you are asked for the number of half turns you want. 2 will take the spiral round once completely. Next you are asked for the width of the gap between each spiralling line. If this is a negative number then the spiral will be drawn 180 degrees round from normal. Finally you asked to choose the procedure to use - normal or other. The 'normal' procedure draws spirals with the start and finish points in a horizontal line, and the 'other' procedure draws them with the start and finish points in a vertical line. "A" - ends the program The procedures which draw the spirals are very short and simple, and are called: PROCdraw(t%,x%,y%,c%,w%) and PROCdrawsin(t%,x%,y%,c%,w%) which can be used in any application and are almost exactly the same. Editor: Try entering these in response to the prompts: 6,320,512,6,100,O 5,320,512,6,-100,O 6,960,512,6,-100,O 5,960,512,6,100,O 3,640,768,6,100,O 5,640,768,5,-100,O 6,640,256,5,-100,O 3,640,256,5,100,O 6,640,512,12,20,N 5,640,512,11,-20,N This data is similar to that in the demo program, it will give you something to experiment with. Try altering the values slightly each time to see what happens.                                    
