DrawScript at London user group / Mon 16th July 2018

Post by helpful » Wed Jul 04, 2018 11:09 pm

The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group Of London will be:

DrawScript, presented by David Lane
Monday 16th July 2018, 7.45pm
The Blue Eyed Maid, upstairs in the restaurant
173 Borough High Street, SE1 1HR

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?

ROUGOL's venue is easy to reach by public transport from in and around London and the south east:
- 2 minutes walk from Borough tube station
- 5 minutes walk from London Bridge station
- 10 minutes from Waterloo (two stops eastbound on the Jubilee line to London Bridge)
- 20 minutes from Euston and Kings Cross/St Pancras (southbound on the Bank branch of the Northern Line to Borough)

The meetings take over the pub's upstairs restaurant for the evening. Entry is free, food & drink plentiful (but not free!).

Bryan.
