Challenge: 10 PRINT Screensavers

All right, anyone who is listening.

Someone has written requesting a 10 PRINT screensaver.

I can’t find one lying around the Web – is anyone up for creating one for Windows, Mac, and/or GNU/Linux (xscreensaver)?

It’s be great to make the code available so that people could modify it as they could modify the original 10 PRINT program.

The person seeking this screensaver has suggested, cleverly, that upon exiting the screensaver, the message “BREAK IN 10 / READY.” be shown.

  1. Just tore through the book today.

    Dunno about solutions for Windows and Linux, but someone should totally implement a 10 PRINT screensaver for OS X via Quartz Composer… via some kind of plug in that’d let you run VICE or another C64 emulator as essentially some kind of realtime imported asset.

    Trying to wrap my head around it right now. Would be so sexy if someone figured it out.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
