This is a simple text-editor, but it is SUPER helpful when editing code. It offers gentle, friendly formatting support that really helps keep things working well.
This page includes a simple mouse-tracking script:
This page includes an image that follows the mouse-cursor around:
This page has a second image that appears or disappears when the mouse-button is clicked:

Start with this program:
It makes a circle that sluggishly follows the mouse-cursor around. I use something like this when I want the movement to look smoother. I hide the mouse and use whatever graphic I have chosen instead.
Next, try this program:
This does the same thing, but it introduces the concept of an array. Instead of one circle following the mouse-cursor, there are now sixteen, and they are sort of playing follow-the-leader.
Finally, look at this program:
This is the same as the string of sixteen circles playing follow-the-leader, but it has 100 circles instead, and I increased the speed a little.

QB64 is the version of BASIC we are experimenting with. You can install it on MAC or Windows. When you run a program that you have written, it generates a complete standalone EXE program file.
You can get it here:
These are template programs I have written that you can download and modify:
This first program contains many useful code parts. I have heavily documented it to explain what I have written. The second program is the exact same thing, but without all of my comments.
This is a version of the program we used for Brilliant Being in Prague. It requires two files: the program itself, plus a small text file that allows casual adjustment of the screen size and some other factors.
