I designed a simple start up page. You can see a few different objects on the page but the whole thing gets created with simple lines in a file. The layout for this page is
A small start
5p G 5p 5
5T 5 15b55
5 s 5
5 e e p5
The first line has three parts, Beginner is the name of the page, 10,10 are the width and height of the page. The second line is a hint or message for the page. The size of the remaining section is defined by the width and height. This has 10 lines (height = 10) and each line has 10 characters (width = 10). Each character in this section defines a single block. It is usual to surround the whole page with solid walls, usually the '5' character which is a wall block with square edges. Walls with rounded edges are created with numbers laid out like this:
So, the fourth line has a rounded corner defined by '1' and the eighth line has a rounded wall end which is defined by '4' . Every page must have a 'G' which is Rye and at least one 'p', a prize. You would expect to see one or more beasts, 'T', to increase the jeopardy.
Next we need to load the file and display pages.
