Examples

Tutorials and examples are the fastest way (in my opinion) to learn a new language. Well, ZX BASIC is not so new if you are used to Sinclair BASIC. The following is a list of examples, some of them already bundled with the ZX BASIC distribution in the examples/ directory:

Draws a circle pixel by pixel using PLOT primitive
Sample clock which uses the FRAMES variable (taken from the ZX Spectrum 48K user manual)
Like above, but a bit improved.
