Fast PLOT/DRAW Toolkit

Postby Andrew » Sat May 21, 2022 12:48 pm

In SBASIC/SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online there are some commands related to Fast PLOT/DRAW Toolkit
The commands in this toolkit are:
DRAW
PLOT
REFRESH
SCLR
SCRBASE

Where can I find the toolkit? I could not find it on DIlwyn's site

Don't know where that is - But the DIY Toolkit's Section G has fast screen plot and line commands that might serve you just as well.

Yes and No
Yes - as long as you want to PLOT on the visible screen.
But the Fast PLOT/DRAW Toolkit PLOT and DRAW commands are relative to the address defined/redefined with SCRBASE and allow background drawing.

Try my PD Toolkit disks - attached

It should be in there somewhere!

Thank you Rich.
It seems that it's not on the disks.

In that case, I assume that this is one of the original toolkit descriptions added to the Reference Manual by the original German authors before I got involved....

I didn't have every toolkit which they had...

This is not the one asked for, but may come in useful. They are similar to LINE, LINE_R, POINT and INK but apparently up to about 20x faster

It's a FastLine article by David J Perry originally published in the old Popular Computing Weekly magazine on 15th January 1987. The article was added to Quanta Library at some point by Michael L Jackson.
