RISC OS User Group Of London
DrawScript is a programming (or script) language for producing line-drawings in Draw format. The language used is BASIC extended with extra graphics commands. DrawScript is capable of producing much more elaborate drawings than could be created manually only using a mouse, as shown by the examples in the DrawScript gallery.
David will describe in more detail what DrawScript is and what it does, demonstrating some simple examples that come with the software as well as some of his own programs. Uses of DrawScript will be given and some bugs discussed. DrawScript and BASIC programs that relate to one of the many proofs of the rectangular tiling theorem will be demonstrated.
No preparation or knowledge of DrawScript is necessary as all will be explained. If, however, you have the program (download here) you are encouraged to experiment and suggest your own uses.
A question from David: Can you get DrawScript to produce more than one Draw file from
one program? David has also suggested that everyone brings a pencil and paper to draw diagrams!
The usual arrangements
Admittance is free and everyone is welcome. All meetings benefit from video projection, so everyone should have a great view.
The Blue Eyed Maid is easily accessible by public transport from in and around London and the south east, and serves a wide range of hot and cold food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
To be informed about future meetings, please join the mailing list. Everyone on the mailing list will be kept informed of these and other ROUGOL initiatives.
