I have written a tutorial on how to use StarBasic to create Draw documents in OpenOffice.org. It is a Writer document which contains "live" buttons that you can click to immediately run the example programs described. Numerous illustrations and drawings.

The document presents an implementation of Turtle Graphics and then gives examples of how to write simple StarBasic programs using the provided turtle graphics API. The main focus is on how to generate geometric shapes and objects using turtle graphics.

Of course, you can look insdie the turtle graphics implementation to learn how it directly manipulates OOo to create drawings. I plan to continue expanding the libraries contained within the document's macros.

The document will be updated periodically. I plan to continue expanding it. So if you download it, you might want to check back periodically.

The document has just been posted on http://www.ooextras.org under the newly created Projects/Tutorials section.

You can see a screenshot here (but this reveals very little actually).

You can download the document here.

It is a Writer document, so you need OOo. (Of course, the document is pretty useless without OOo to run the examples.)

I sincerely hope that this information is useful to someone.

This sounds like an old toy that I used to play with, the LOGO language. Shall give it a try.
