NAME

Tk::CanvasLogo - a Tk::Canvas widget that can support methods based on the Logo Programming Language as well as multiple turtles.

SYNOPSIS

        use Tk;
        use CanvasLogo;

        my $top = MainWindow->new();
        my $logo = $top->CanvasLogo->pack();
        my $turtle = $logo -> NewTurtle;
        $turtle -> LOGO_FD(50); # forward 50 
        MainLoop();

DESCRIPTION

The Tk::CanvasLogo widget is a regular Canvas widget that adds support to allow drawing on the canvas with Logo commands. The user first creates a CanvasLogo widget. Then using that widget, the user creates turtle objects which are attached to that CanvasLogo widget. Turtle objects can then execute Logo-based methods.

The following methods are currently supported.

$turtle->LOGO_FD(N); # move turtle forward N pixels

$turtle->LOGO_BK(N); # move turtle backward N pixels

$turtle->LOGO_RT(N); # turn turtle Right (clockwise) N degrees

$turtle->LOGO_LT(N); # turn turtle Left (counter clockwise) N degrees

$turtle->LOGO_PU; # turtle's "pen" up. moving turtle while pen up will not draw.

$turtle->LOGO_PD; # turtle's "pen" down. moving turtle while pen down will draw.

$turtle->LOGO_CS; # Clear screen. This will clear the turtle and everything it drew. It will not clear entire canvas. Use Canvas->delete('all') for that.

$turtle->LOGO_HOME; # move turtle to center of screen facing straight up.
