2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

Here's a nice short program that will bite the Apple right down to the core!

Robert Foulke contributes this little gem that will generate random-type graphic images that are beautifully geometric. If you have a screen print program, you can get some super-fantastic printouts!

In the fourth program line, where you have the option of changing the RND number, try 3 or 30 first. These can produce some exceptionally fine graphics. But, as Robert says, any number will do.

We believe you'll really like this one. It can be extremely entertaining.

The Listing:

10 ' R. FOULKE - 1981
20 ' "POLYGON"
41 PI=3.14159:M=RND(90)
51 FOR T=0 TO 2*PI STEP PI/75
60 R=COS(M*T)*95
71 X1=COS(T)*R+128:Y1=SIN(T)*R+96
80 A=T+PI/3
90 R2=COS(M*A)*95
100 X2=COS(A)*R2+128:Y2=SIN(A)*R2+96
110 LINE (X1,Y1)-(X2,Y2),PSET 120 NEXT T
130 FOR T=1 TO 800:NEXTT
140 GOTO30
