This book is intended to be fun but also educational. It contains
programs for the Dragon 32 home micro-computer, which is equipped
with Microsoft 16K Colour BASIC. The majority of the programs are
short (about 50 lines) so that it is easy to type them in and "RUN".
Some are serious and some are silly but we hoe most of all that you
will find them fun. There are also some longer ones towards the back
of the book, which might be more difficult to get going but should
prove more rewarding. The complexity of a program increases with the
square of its length and most commercial programs are over 2,000
The book is educational in several ways. Firstly, we provide homework
tools like "Sums Tester" and "Vocabulary Tester", which might make
humdrum tasks more exciting. Secondly, a major section of the book is
devoted to explaining in a comprehensive way the Graphics features
on the Dragon. This could prove a useful supplementary source to your
BASIC manual for understanding these very powerful features. Lastly,
comprehensive chapters are included on "Debugging Programs" and
"Hints and Tips", both of which should help to get your own programs
running as well as the programs in this book.
Our thanks are due to our program testers for service sometimes beyond
the call of duty.
