I downloaded and tried both entries.
They are both great.
This is a tough; can only pick one. :-\

If the programs are going to be continued with, here are a few helpful suggestion:

MrLogo : I was looking for a "run" or "go" button to get the loaded script to do something.

SizeExplorer:  either do not allow user to select root of a drive (e.g. C:\) or have some sort of progress indicator to show program is still doing something.  Selecting a 250 gig hard drive takes a loooooong time to get a response from.  ::)

Both applications were good but I voted for MrLogo as I have fond memories of messing about with LOGO when I was at school, it's good to see that it's still in use today.

To run a logo script, you have to edit a new in the edit area or load from file. Then have to click on the "Store" button, to store it in the system memory. After this few steps, you'll open the command dialog, clicking on the "Command" button. In the editable area u'll put the name of your script followed from existing parameter. That's all :)

WOW! "That's all" ???? Really, I hope you will update your code to simplify this. Unless, of course, you want only geeks to use this feature.

Yes, there is a lot to improve / extend for this program. Check out the todo.txt in the source code ;D. Most important is to run the exploring task in a thread and show a progressbar (including a cancel button).

Hi Joske,

your program is nice, I managed to run it successfully on my legacy Win95 IBM laptop :)

MrLogo has interesting topic, I am also interested in turtle graphics, so I liked it too. I was just little confused "how to run it" like others :)


Thanks,
Petr

Thanks for the suggestions. I know that the way to run a script is not very user-friendly, i'll fix it in the next version running and editing a script in the main window.  :)
