summary Computer programming is a powerful exploratory design tool. A simple algorithm can produce results of unexpected complexity, variety, and appeal. By mimicking evolution in nature, rich global states are gradually developed over time by iteration of elementary local rules. Fractal images and life-game simulations are two well known examples. This paper presents a pattern-generating application based on the walking turtle metaphor. The turtle has an intelligence of its own, can be randomly disturbed or directed interactively by the user. Several snapshots are shown of amazingly diverse patterns left by the turtle walking in various modes. Advantages of object-oriented visual programming environments for rapid application development are discussed.
