I just meant that logo was one of the the first languages I learned. Logo itself I don't remember too much (its been more than 10 years since I've touched it) and I recall it being ok... but its the turtle stuff I found painfull (although recursive spirograph kind of stuff was cool to do... once it finished drawing) I had to do some projects at school which used logo and man that was a chore... actually as much work as the MS BASIC WAS... My biggest project took me 18 pages of BASIC (with a few graphic pattern genertors included in that) and three weeks of "plotting" by trial and error, to draw an 8 tower castle with shades in its towers, roofs and under the crenelations... Things change, the bad stuff gets weeded out... which is why rebol has not much in common with BASIC... (a part that its interpreted... ;-) peace :-) -MAx
