Abstract : The SCOPE language has been designed to provide an introduction to interactive computing and the cathode-ray tube graphics display. The user is given the opportunity to input a figure and see the kinds of things that can be done with that figure on the display screen. The language has been implemented on an XDS 9300 computer interfaced with an Adage AGT 10 graphics terminal. Each instruction is described, and the algorithms used to actually display figures are also described. Suggestions for future implementations are also included. (Author)
