Using rLogo Runtime, it is very simple to incorporate rLogo programs into your web pages. Basically, you need to save your work into a text file, download the Runtime classes, and place the appropriate html instructions in your page to load and run your rLogo program.

(If these instructions don't make sense, please ask your local expert.)

1. Download and unzip http://www.embry.com/rLogo/runtime.zip into your World Wide Web subdirectory.
(Be sure to unzip with the "-d" option, to preserve the directory structure.)

2. Place the following lines into your html file:

<APPLET code="rLogoRuntime.class" width=300 height=200>
<PARAM NAME="SRC" VALUE="filename.logo">
</APPLET>

Be sure to replace "filename.logo" with the name of the text file that contains your rLogo program. You may also change the width and height parameters to your preferences.

When you unzip runtime.zip, it will also create the files rLogoRuntimeSample.html and rLogoSample.logo. These files may be used to quickly test that rLogo Runtime has been properly installed.

There are several rLogo commands that you may find useful for creating visual effects. Normally, when you issue a drawing command it is executed immediately; however, you can use manual to cause redraws to not automatically occur until you force them with a paint command. The auto command performs a paint, then resumes normal redrawing. The pause command causes rLogo to pause for the specified number of milliseconds (there are 1000 milliseconds in a second.) See the source code for Examples #6 & #7 for sample usage of these commands.
