This is another pack of useful programs and procedures, this time concentrating on graphics. The pack mainly covers plotting graphics, although user defined characters are briefly touched on.
Included are methods for drawing a variety of mathematical figures, techniques for movement and animation, and some interesting routines for representing 3D objects. There are also some interesting mathematical curves and a number of other patterns, such as the CARPET program, all of which produce some very striking effects.
The final programs show various scenes which incorporate techniques developed earlier in the book. This pack can be recommended, particularly for those interested in developing their own programs of this kind. Rating: ****
