If you know how to use Draw.Line and such, just tinker with it until you figure it out. If you don't know how to use the Draw functions, the inbuilt Turing help is pretty good and http://compsci.ca/v3/viewtopic.php?t=8808 also helps ALOT!

The draw line command is confusing i dont know how to make it move to make it move a certain part of the screen and sometimes the line goes big

In order to draw a line from point A to point B on the screen you would need to use the Draw.Line command. In the following x1 and y1 would be equal to the coordinates of point A, and x2 and y2 would be equal to the coordinates of point B, colour is equal to the colour of the line.

 code: Draw.Line (x1,y1,x2,y2,colour)

to make the line move you just erase and redraw it a bit further down. That can be done like this
(This line moves across the screen)
 code: for i : 1..100    Draw.Line (x1+i,y1,x2+i,y2,colour) %draw the line   delay(50)   Draw.Line (x1+i,y1,x2+i,y2,white) %This will erase the line(if white is the background colour) end for

If that doesn't help enough, give us whatever code you have and we'll help from there.

I've never really looked at the blog in Safari before, but if all the pages are like that, you should try and fix it. It worked fine in Camino though and the article makes sense.

 Author: A.J [ Fri Jan 23, 2009 5:34 pm ] Post subject: RE:Turing Boat I believe that you can simulates the waves by means of trigonometric functions (i.e. sine and cosine waves) you can translate it to your needs to make it look like whaever from of water waves you want

 Author: DanielG [ Fri Jan 23, 2009 5:36 pm ] Post subject: RE:Turing Boat it's not that hard, use sin, for i : 1 .. size of your screen, drawline (i,0, 50+10*sind(i), blue) end for I can't use turing now to check, but it should work.
