A unmarried line of code deals the way to comprehend the cultural context of computing.

This ebook takes a unmarried line of code--the super concise uncomplicated software for the Commodore sixty four inscribed within the title--and makes use of it aa a lens by which to think about the phenomenon of artistic computing and how computing device courses exist in tradition.

The authors of this collaboratively written booklet deal with code now not as in simple terms useful yet as a text--in the case of 10 PRINT, a textual content that seemed in lots of diversified revealed sources--that yields a narrative approximately its making, its goal, its assumptions, and extra. they give thought to randomness and regularity in computing and paintings, the maze in tradition, the preferred easy programming language, and the hugely influential Commodore sixty four laptop.

Philips. To players today, the game looks like just another maze game. 5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 1/3/13 9:33:11 PM Man. The two games are similar in that they both feature mazes that are orthogonally aligned. But among K. C. Munchkin’s differences are that it allows players to take on the role of Daedalus, designing their own levels. Other videogame mazes, and games with mazy environments, quick- ly made their way into the home, too. The game bundled with the classic cartridge-based Atari VCS in 1977 was Combat, which brought the convoluted battlefields of Tank into the home.

5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 1/3/13 9:33:08 PM overly crisp when compared to those seen on an early display. An emulator lets the user to save the current state of memory, registers, and so on more easily than BASIC programs can be saved to and loaded from disk on the hardware Commodore 64. 5 by adding or subtracting a couple tenths from it. This will give either character a greater chance of being selected” (1982, 53). ” As one diagonal predominates, the perceived architecture of the maze tends to long corridors along that direction.

5+RND(1)) : POKE S+1,A(Q*2) : POKE S,A(Q*2+1) 40 POKE S+4,17 : FOR T=1 TO 75 : NEXT 50 POKE S+4,16 : FOR T=1 TO 150 : NEXT 60 GOTO 30 In Commodore 64 BASIC, one can point into a table of PETSCII characters by simply using 205 and 206 as indices. But there is no similar built-in way to index into a table of notes. After setting up the sound chip in line 10, this program builds such a table using the array A in line 20. Furthermore, the sound chip requires two POKE commands—the ones on line 30—to change the note frequency.
