Step 1: Step 1 Moving the Turtle

The thing that draws everything is know as the turtle.

Let's start with something simple.

In the commander window type in the box:

Forward 50

Then click execute or press enter on you keyboard, do this after anything you type in the commander window.

This draws a straight line up 50.

That was easy but lets make it shorter and faster, type:

FD 50

This does the same thing as Forward 50 but is shorter to type

Now that we know how to draw a straight line lets draw it to the right instead of up, type:

RT 90 FD 50

This rotates the turtle 90 degrees to the right and makes the turtle go forward 50.

When things get too messy on the screen, type :

clearscreen or CS (abbreviated )

This will clear the screen and erase everything drawn this also returns the turtle to the up position.

If you want to rotate the turtle left, type:

LT 90

Next to draw backwards, type:

Back or BK 50

The turtle moves back 50.

When there are too many words recorded in the commander window, type :

Cleartext or CT

Now you should now the most basic commands.
