TinyLogo 1.1
Logo programming environment


by:  Timothy J. Lipetz



Product website

TinyLogo is a programming language and program execution environment. It is especially friendly to beginning programmers or people who just want to get a simple idea of what programming is all about. It is based on the Logo programmining language and comes complete with Turtle Graphics.

Once TinyLogo is installed, programs can be written and run entirely on the Palm computer. Also, since TinyLogo programs can be saved and loaded from memos, they can be exchanged with anyone else running TinyLogo. TinyLogo has over 90 built-in procedures and most importantly, allows you to extend the language by writing your own procedures. Within a very short time, new programmers can write their own procedures to create computer graphics, play music, manipulate words and sentences, and calculate numbers.
