This is a collection of simple programs
I have written over the past two years
which may be amusing to a young child.
All programs require a color monitor.
The programs MIRROR.PRG, TILE1.PRG and
TILE2.PRG are simple drawing programs.
By applying simple symmetry operators,
any scribbling looks interesting.
COLOR.PRG uses the fill command to
color outlined areas in a set of
pictures (COLOR1.PI1, COLOR2.PI2 etc.).
By superimposing textures, you can get
interesting looking pictures.
TYPE.PRG gives your child the
opportunity to use the keyboard of the
computer. A map of the keyboard is
displayed on the screen and your child
presses the letter in red on the
displayed keyboard. Nothing happens
unless the correct letter is pressed.
There are no upper case letters, but
your child must know about the space
bar. The sequence of letters pressed,
form the words to the nursery rhyme
'Ba Ba Black Sheep'. The program plays
part of the tune, each time a verse is
NITPICK.PRG displays an array of two
similar shapped letters (Hebrew letters
in the higher levels). Using the mouse
find and click all instances of the
requested letter. The higher levels
are difficult for even adults with good
vision. This program runs in medium
The package of programs and their
sources (*.LST files) may be treated
