At the risk of being attacked as an enemy of all that is good, I have to confess to being less than riveted by the Olympics, so far. So I have made far more productive use of my time in seeking to recreate the computing experience of 30 years ago – by working some more on BINSIC – Binsic Is Not Sinclair Instruction Code, my reimplementation of Sinclair ZX81 BASIC.
I have finally got
UNPLOT to work – not on the same screen as ordinary output, but on a separate graphics console.
It’s just in the Git repo now (at Github under mcmenaminadrian) but an executable JAR will follow shortly.
