thank you for this news, sounds very promising. As a teacher I used
different logo versions - and I know other collegues from the
skolelinux list which are longig for an adequat replacement for
non-free Logo implementations.
I just learned, that one of those (Jochen G.) had already been in
contact with you. This makes me wonder what would be the best place to
put suggestions for the version to come?
1. Localised commands should follow common conventions (vorwaerts
instead of bewegeum). The same for their acronyms (vw = fw)
2. Commands should be executable one by one (instantly). Multiline code
should be provided by procedures ("Learn MyProcedure") - if you want to
check out what I mean you may try MSWLogo (freeware) in Wine.....
3. Watch variables (maybe also breakpoints).
A. have a selection of 2-3 different turtles (in German we call it
"Igel" = hedgehog, some might prefer a more technical cursor)
B. make the pen (turtle, porcupine) always watch in the current
direction. This is not too easy for bitmaps (how about svg?), so maybe
there must be a containing geometric object (triangle, arrow)?
C. draw interactivlely using your mouse (buttons to click on) or your
keyboard (arrow keys) and create the corresponding code this way.
So far for now, I would be glad if any of these ideas would contribute
to your work.
