This chapter presents a case study that demonstrates a process for designing functions that work together.
It introduces the
turtle module, which allows you to create images using turtle graphics. The
turtle module is included in most Python installations, but if you are running Python using PythonAnywhere, you won’t be able to run the turtle examples (at least you couldn’t when I wrote this).
If you have already installed Python on your computer, you should be able to run the examples. Otherwise, now is a good time to install. I have posted instructions at http://tinyurl.com/thinkpython2e.
Code examples from this chapter are available from http://thinkpython2.com/code/polygon.py.
