Developer by: Ron Schnell Category: Data Files Format: Text

Source file written in Artspeak, a computer language used to create a graphical output; contains simple text-based statements that are referenced to draw shapes, lines, patterns, etc.

Artspeak was originally developed in 1970 by Jacob Schwartz. The language only ran on the CDC 6600, which was a supercomputer created by Seymour Cray. It was used to produce a graphical design on a sheet of paper. The language eventually faded away but was brought back in 2012 by Ron Schnell. It can now be used to produce a .PNG graphic instead of a sheet of paper.

NOTE: The SPK file can be created and loaded to display the graphical output using the Artspeak Interpreter web program.
