Plot Basic Instruction Set

Post by lowrybt1 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 4:37 am

Does anyone know what additional commands are available in Plot Basic -- and/or know where Plot Basic instructions might be found?

Thanks, Tom

PlotBASIC commands can be found on pg 9 of the TOSIE newsletter July/83 issue.

Edit: Ooops, I don't see it online. I have it, but I thought I had already scanned it. I guess I'll have to add that to my list ;-)

PLOTn(parameters) where 'n' is 0 to 8.

PLOT0(x,y) - set origin
PLOT1(x,y,chr,col) - plot a square
PLOT2 hmm, not documented
PLOT3(x,y,x2,y2,chr,col) - create rectangle
PLOT4(chr,col) - fill the screen
PLOT5(x,y) - plot a point
PLOT6(x,y,x2,y2) - plot a line
PLOT7(A$;B%(0,0);x,y) - bring in a figure from directory and position it
PLOT8(B%(0,0),dir) - move the figure in a direction (0-9)

Turns out I had scanned the issue. I have sent it to Dave, so hopefully he will post it soon.
Also scanned and sent him two more issues.
