Full Instructions


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 lines long!

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.
