I'll look into that, probably has to do with the point count. (Yes, still working on the help ...) RE: Cannabis curve - Marcus - 08-07-2022 Ah yes, there's a hard coded limit of 64 points for polygons. I'll fix that and make it unlimited. RE: Cannabis curve - johnno1956 - 08-07-2022 Far out. I can dig it. RE: Cannabis curve - Marcus - 08-07-2022     I fixed the point limit thingy bug, so now it can make it look a bit better. I've fixed plenty of bugs without releasing a new version, but I want to have the help and new docs ready before updating. RE: Cannabis curve - Marcus - 08-07-2022 In the code posted in that facebook group (BASIC Programming Language, https://www.facebook.com/groups/2057165187928233) they used 'FILL'. Is that a command we might need? I also really like the 'DRAW TO' command, that takes a single point and continues from the last point drawn. I don't care that much for drawing "primitives" myself, but maybe others do? RE: Cannabis curve - Rick3137 - 08-07-2022 Nice That's sure a lot of drawing for that short amount of code.

RE: Cannabis curve - johnno1956 - 08-07-2022 Set the "way back" machine to the 13th of June 1985. That was the year that the Amstrad cpc6128 was released. (Ok. Keep the cheering under control. That is not my main point... lol) One year earlier (1984) saw the beginning of the cpc464. The '6128' had a very fast 'fill' command (for those days) and the owners of the '464' wanted the same. Many routines and patches later saw a fill routine but it was not as fast... at the cost of memory... This was the result of "adding" a feature. I do not believe that N7 needs to have anything 'added'. Not added. Modified... N7 already has 'fill' for ellipses and rectangles by the use of the final parameter, "1". N7 has 'draw polygon'. Modify the command to include the 'fill' parameter. The 'draw line' command (draw line x1,y1,x2,y2 actual coords) could be modified to draw line - x2,y2 relative coords). Just a few thoughts. Of course I have no idea how to do all this... lol J RE: Cannabis curve - Marcus - 08-08-2022 I've added 'draw line to' here (also works with just 'draw line' but with only 2 parameters). Should the starting coordinates only be affected by the previous 'draw line [to]', 'draw pixel' and 'set pixel'? Polygons are always closed, so it wouldn't really make sens to let 'draw line [to]' continue from the last = first point? I will add 'fill' too. I believe I wrote an example, "Flood fill", in n6 that was quite fast and can be rewriten in C. "N7 has 'draw polygon'. Modify the command to include the 'fill' parameter" 'draw poly' already has a fill parameter RE: Cannabis curve - johnno1956 - 08-08-2022 Cool... No prizes given to the person who guesses that I do not use the 'fill' option with polygons... lol
