Welp, here it is!

This program was written by:

Jeremy Kusnetz
9520 Sweet Grass Ridge
Columbia, MD 21046



It has been made freely distributable. The author retains the copyright
to the program but authorizes free distribution by BBS'es, networks or
by magnetic media. The distributer may choose to charge for the cost of
the disk but should not sell the software for profit. Non-profit
organizations such as clubs may charge for the software so long as the
price is reasonable (less than $5.00 more than the cost of the disk) and
so long as the buyers are informed that the program is freely
distributable.

The author makes no guarantees or warantees with this program and claims
no responsibility for any damage or loss of time caused by this program.
Bug reports may be sent to the author but the author is under no
obligation to provide bug fixes, features, or any support for this
software.

Blah, blah, blah, blah...


But anyway, if yah like this program and continue to use it, actualy even
if you don't like it and you erase it, a small registration fee would be
GREAT! In fact if you do decide to register this program, for a small,
I mean small fee of $5.00, yes thats right only $5.00, you can get a
modified version of the program that can be used as a screen saver. Plus
that feeling that you contributed to at least one of those many SW programs
I'm sure you have.


That reminds me, I guess you are wondering what this program does (unless
of course you have already ran the program, neat huh). Well first a little
story.

I made the first version of this program, totaly by accident. I was playing
with some sin and cos functions, and I ran it and got some random looking dots
flying around the screen, so I connected it with a line and got a neat-o
pattern! So any way, a year later I was playing with it decided to fix it
up and distribute it. wow

By the way, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW IT WORKS, as I said it was an accident that
made it, but for your math pukes out there, here is the equation that does
it:
x[count]:=trunc(sin(count*xr)*230)+340;
y[count]:=trunc(cos(count*yr)*230)+240;

Yeah, there is a little more to it, but in order to get that, well...
I want your money, hehehheh.

Well, as you can probably tell, it is written in pascal, wow.

In order to run this program you need a EGA, or a VGA, not much difference
between the two, except the VGA uses higher resolution, and uses more
colors.

Any way, when you run this program, you have a choice whether to enter the
numbers in manualy or not, don't do manual unless you already got some values
of neat pictures that you find.

Just follow the directions for the rest of the prompting.

While in the program there are certain buttons that do some things:

space bar- clear the screen, and starts a new picture.
x - overlays a new picture over the old picture.
s - pulls up some stats, of the variables that are being used,
you can later use these values when entering the numbers in
manualy.
d - lets you change the defaults.
q - you guessed it quit!

Welp, I guess thats about all, enjoy, and remember:

If yah like this program and continue to use it, actualy even
if you don't like it and you erase it, a small registration fee would be
GREAT! In fact if you do decide to register this program, for a small,
I mean small fee of $5.00, yes thats right only $5.00, you can get a
modified version of the program that can be used as a screen saver. Plus
that feeling that you contributed to at least one of those many SW programs
I'm sure you have.
