Turing 027 — Graphics Assignment I

Turing can switch to graphics mode from text mode by issuing the command...

setscreen ("graphics:vga")

After this command in invoked in your program, the screen is then configured into an (x, y) coordinate system that is 640 pixels wide by 400 pixels high in Windows Turing or 640 by 480 pixels in DOS Turing.

Refer to the Turing Graphics Summary for a complete list of the graphics commands.


Write a program that puts the screen into graphics mode, then "put" your name to the screen. Did this look any different than a non-graphics mode program? (Enter your response as a program comment.)

Save as "027.t".
