Page 14 of 14 SOME FINAL HINTS

To individually view any of the thirteen objects, type ACROSPIN at the DOS
prompt, followed by the name of the input file for the object:
BEDROOM.FIL -- bedroom. GALAXY.FIL -- galaxy.
CALIFORN.FIL -- map of California. GEAR.FIL -- gear.
COLORS.FIL -- available colors. JET.FIL -- fighter jet.
CUBE.FIL -- cube. LAMP.FIL -- lamp.
DESKSIGN.FIL -- desk sign. SURFACE.FIL -- curved surface plot.
FACE.FIL -- face. TRIANGLE.FIL -- triangle.
FIREWORK.FIL -- fireworks.
For example, to view the available colors you would type ACROSPIN COLORS.FIL.

If you would like to create your own input files for AcroSpin, FACE.FIL, which
was typed in by hand, is a good example to look at. Like all AcroSpin input
files, it is a standard ASCII file so you can view it using your favorite text
editor or the DOS TYPE command. Most of the other input files were generated
by Turbo Pascal programs. Two of the programs may be especially useful:
WRITETEX.PAS, which is the subroutine used to generate all of the text in the
input files, and SURFACE.PAS, which created SURFACE.FIL, and which is easily
modified to generate 3-dimensional surface plots of your favorite functions.

Last but not least, the manual might be handy. Thank you for using AcroSpin.

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
