  Here is the version of a classic
 little program that you may have
seen on many other computers. All it
does is ask you how many sides and
draws a shape as such. All you should
have to do to use it is download it
as a text file, run it through a word
 processor or some type of file editor
 to get all of the extra text out of
it (getting rid of everything but the
program itself), and saving it as a 
BASIC LISTing (i.e. use the L"D:fname.
ext" command).


  Run it, change it, or just have fun !!!!!



and this is it.....
0 POKE 82,0:POKE 731,1:POKE 710,12:POKE 709,6:POKE 712,8
10 GRAPHICS 8:SETCOLOR 1,0,15:SETCOLOR 2,0,0
20 DEG :DIM X(50),Y(50):OPEN #1,4,0,"K:"
30 SS=0:? "HOW MANY SIDES ";:INPUT SIDES
40 IF SIDES>30 THEN 5000
50 FOR A=0 TO 360 STEP 360/SIDES
60 SS=SS+1
70 X(SS)=SIN(A)*60+160
80 Y(SS)=COS(A)*60+90
90 NEXT A:COLOR 0
100 FOR L1=1 TO SS:FOR L2=L1 TO SS
110 PLOT X(L1),Y(L1):DRAWTO X(L2),Y(L2)
120 COLOR 1:NEXT L2:NEXT L1
130 ? "PRESS ANY KEY TO GO ON"
140 GET #1,K
150 ? #6;CHR$(125);:GOTO 30
5000 ? " TOO MANY SIDES":? " ANY KEY TO GO ON":GET #1,K:GOTO 30

  If you got any problems, just feel
free to call me via E-mail and I will
try to download it to you directly, or
for a low cost, send you a Disk with
it on it (in single or double density,
DOSes 2.0s,3,2.5)

 (I just hope you are not so unlucky
as to be stuck with DOS3 as your main
DOS !!!!!!!!!!!)
