A unmarried line of code deals how to comprehend the cultural context of computing.

This e-book takes a unmarried line of code--the tremendous concise easy application for the Commodore sixty four inscribed within the title--and makes use of it aa a lens in which to contemplate the phenomenon of inventive computing and how machine courses exist in tradition.

The authors of this collaboratively written ebook deal with code now not as in simple terms useful yet as a text--in the case of 10 PRINT, a textual content that seemed in lots of assorted revealed sources--that yields a narrative approximately its making, its goal, its assumptions, and extra. they give thought to randomness and regularity in computing and artwork, the maze in tradition, the preferred simple programming language, and the hugely influential Commodore sixty four computing device.

Sample text

By striving to design accurate adaptations, and to capture qualities of the original code as well as the output, nuances of the original that might otherwise be overlooked can be revealed.

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the faerie queen Titania ponders the ghostly outlines of abandoned turf mazes: The nine men’s morris is fill’d up with mud, And the quaint mazes in the wanton green For lack of tread are undistinguishable. 98–100) As more and more pagan and secular mazes emerged alongside church and other labyrinth traditions, they retained some of their profound, sacred nature while also offering puzzle play and leisure. Hedge mazes and 10 PRINT possess affinities that their material differences obscure.

Theseus arrives at Knossos and wins the affection of the king’s daughter Ariadne, who offeres him a means of returning from the labyrinth after he enters it to defeat the Minotaur. She suggests he tie a string to the entrance and unravel it as he proceeds through the maze so that he can follow it back to the entrance. Thanks to Ariadne’s thread, Theseus successfully makes his way through the maze, slays the Minotaur, and escapes. The allegory here invokes the danger of illicit desire; it also shows that those who hold tight to a predetermined path can succeed.
