ACSLogo is a Logo interpreter, while Logo is a computer programming language designed for educational purposes. A mechanical turtle is an on-screen cursor that can be given drawing instructions and movement commands so that graphics are obtained.
Complex graphics can be drawn, such as repetitive tiling-type patterns, Peano curves, fractals and space-filling fractals and recursively drawn images. Basically, a turtle's movement will be programmed, turtle which will draw lines as it moves, resulting in complex patterns. The utility consists of two windows, respectively the edit window, for command input, and the graphics screen, where the command results can be viewed. Exports can be made to PNG, TXT, SVG, EPS, PNG, ACSD. Logo can be used to teach simple programming, maths and computer science concepts, through observation of the guided progress of the turtle, as it is an educational language. The "help" menu provides good information related to implementing the Logo language.
