A unmarried line of code bargains the way to comprehend the cultural context of computing.

This publication takes a unmarried line of code--the super concise uncomplicated application for the Commodore sixty four inscribed within the title--and makes use of it aa a lens wherein to contemplate the phenomenon of artistic computing and how desktop courses exist in tradition.

The authors of this collaboratively written e-book deal with code now not as only sensible yet as a text--in the case of 10 PRINT, a textual content that seemed in lots of diverse published sources--that yields a narrative approximately its making, its goal, its assumptions, and extra. they think about randomness and regularity in computing and artwork, the maze in tradition, the preferred easy programming language, and the hugely influential Commodore sixty four laptop.

Example text

The programmer who ports faces similar challenges. What must be preserved when a program is carried across to a new platform: The program’s interface? Its usability? Its gameplay? Its aesthetic design? The underlying algorithm? The effects of the constraints of the original? And should the programmer try to improve the original? The ethos of adaptation will vary from project to project and programmer to programmer; what a programmer chooses to prioritize will help to determine the qualities of the final port and its relationship to the original program.

Its diction? Its constraints? Its meanings? Which of these must be carried over from one language to another in order to produce the most faithful translation? In Nineteen Ways of Looking at Wang Wei, a study of the act and art of translation, Eliot Weinberger (1987) reads nineteen versions of a fourline, 1,200-year-old poem by the Chinese master Wang Wei, attentive to the way translators have reinterpreted the poem over the centuries, even as they attempted to be faithful to the original. With a single word, a translator may create a perspective unseen in Wei’s original, radically shift the mood of the poem, or transform it into complete tripe.

Though the result certainly does not suggest a maze as strongly, this “Weave” version of the program is not without visual interest. The output imparts a three-dimensional impression, as if someone had woven bands of material over and under one another. indd 23 VARIATIONS IN BASIC {23} 1/3/13 9:33:08 PM Corners The Commodore 64 PETSCII character set includes corner characters, such as 204 and 207, which correspond to lower-left and upper-right corner pieces. Randomly selecting either 204 or 207, as is done in this program, produces an image similar to a honeycomb.
