Fractals in Small Basic

There is a list of fractal programs in a blog article here. But, I’d like to update and summarize again about fractal programs in this post. Fractal Tree I think this may be the first fractal program written in Small Basic. The program is listed in Small Basic Getting Started Guide. Dragon Curve Last month,…

Small Basic – Arduino

Arduino is a cheap and popular way to build your own electronics, typically with small sensors and motors, and learn a bit of programming to control it. Controlling it with Small Basic enables you to display data it generates or change settings interactively from your PC. Serial Communication This blog is not about Arduino features,…


Small Basic – TextWindow Colors

In Small Basic, you can change the background and foreground colors of the text window’s output text using the BackgroundColor and ForegroundColor properties of TextWindow. You specify the desired color by number or by name. The permissible values are shown here: Figure: The available TextWindow colors For example, to output your text in yellow, you can…


Physics in Small Basic

What is Physics According to SmallBasic.Dictionary, physics is “study of physical forces and qualities”. Velocity Model I once wrote about velocity in a blog post Small Basic Game Programming – Game Math.  This is the basic of physical simulation.  A program JLF545-1 illustrates the relation between time and velocity. A program KXQ212-2 is a simple sample…


Small Basic Monthly Challenges – March 2016

These challenges are intended for people who are learning to program for the first time or for those returning to programming who want to start using Small Basic.  Some will be easy, some will be hard – but they will all make you think, and more importantly be GREAT FUN! Please post your solutions /…


Vector Sample in Small Basic

I created a sample program about vector in Small Basic.  The program ID is WCT521-0. A 2-dimensional vector can represent the coordinates of a point on the plane. At first, this program shows a sample of vector sum. Secondly, this program shows rotation using a rotation matrix.
