Astrolog, glyph redefinition and turtle graphics

Postby lizard » Jan 10, 2018 21:47

Maybe you know the old horoscope program Astrolog which now came out in version 6.30:

http://www.astrolog.org/astrolog/astfile.htm

With version 6.30 it is now possible to add any planetoid from astro.com with name and glyph to display in the chart. The difficulty is the glyph redefinition with a switch.

In "changes.htm" it is described:

9. Glyph redefinition: Astrolog can change the glyphs used to display objects in graphics charts. The new -YXD command switch takes three parameters: The object index to rename, and two strings which contain the small and large definitions to use for the object’s glyph. The small definition measures 9x9 units (and is used when drawing in the small 100% character scale), and the large definition measures 17x17 (and is used when drawing in the medium 200% character scale). If the large definition is the empty string then a double scale version of the small glyph will be used for it, and if the small definition is the empty string then the default glyph for that object will be used. Glyphs are drawn in vector format by moving a pen (similar to the “draw” command in the BASIC programming language) and drawing starts from the middle unit coordinate. Strings consist of a sequence of actions, each of which starts with a character indicating how to move the pen, following by a number indicating how many units to move in that direction (no number defaults to one unit).

The action characters “U”, “D”, “L”, and “R” move up, down, left, and right. Similarly, “E”, “F”, “G”, and “H” move 45 degrees up and to the right, down and to the right, down and left, and up and left. The action prefix “B” before one of the directions means “blank”, and moves the pen without drawing a line while moving. The prefix “N” before one of the directions means “no update”, and doesn’t move the pen after drawing a line. For example, the default small glyph for Jupiter is: “BH3RFDGDGDR5NDNR2U6E”. Special case: If a definition consists of “T” then don’t do any pen drawing at all, but instead use the three letter abbreviation of the object name for display, like is done with fixed stars.


I came to this new "astrolog.as" which must be copied do folder "astrolog" to start the program each time with these switches. Only for Vishnu i have a glyph-string for small 9x9 (character scale small and large) and big 17x17 (medium and huge). The others are shown as text ("T"). As i found it very difficult to produce the glyph-strings i have now only one 9x9 for Vishnu.

Question would be who knows how to produce such glyph-strings with turtle graphics ?

It works even on Linux when wine is installed with rightclick /open with/wine starter.

It seems you're an enthusiastic astrologer, but I doubt anyone can follow you on this one.

A bit off topic, a major limitation I found with both astrology and astronomy software is the inability to find all conjunctions in the solar system, including those that are non-geocentric and non-heliocentric. They have major influence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoqNDw5X6TY&t=10m16s

My idea was maybe to create a editor in FB to edit the whole glyph set, as they should match each other. Leo, Virgo, Pisces, Jupiter, Saturn and Moon could be a little beautified. And then creating glyphs for all the new planetoids.

Now if found out Pullen uses exactly the same syntax like FB draw, that could simplify the thing a lot.

For the Conjunctions i have to see the video first, read you later.

Yes like it is said in the video, these influences are existing, but weren't considered directly in astrology before. Normal astrology is geocentric, very few use heliocentric view.

With the millenium things began to change. Now some are using the galactic center and other elements outside our solar system. Planetoids like Ceres were in discussion since 19th century. Alfred Witte even postulated "hypothetical planets", the "Uranians" which are seldom used today but can be calculated in Astrolog. They can be taken for redefinitions.

Discovery of Kuiperbelt brought even more planetoids, so that there are thousands now. And they become more and more accepted by astrologers as can be seen here:

What is so fascinating at the glyph-strings it must be the fastest way ever to get a symbol displayed on a background. I have tried the most common techniqes with symbols using truetype-fonts, .bmp, .png images and others. Now i found the glyph-strings beat them all in speed.

If one wants to have a few pixels on a background the fastest way would be simple draw them and finito. Nothing else needed. If a routine draws just these pixels in optimized order, this must be the fastest way ever, because it is the direct approach.

Now we see the sad reality: Pullen left out many of the big glyphs leaving us with a suboptimal display.

I agree with you.
Draw can be a very useful tool for some tasks, and an important part of FeeeBASIC.
Astrology is not my thing.
I looked up Scorpio (I thought lt's symbol was a scorpion) but It turns out there are others.

Great Dodicat. This system can be used for many things. The editor can be used for other purposes with little changes.

This editor version works. Somehow. It is possible to load, save and write a file with the switches for astrolog.as which can be pasted at the end of this file. With < enter> one comes to editor from there with <tab> to the upper and back and with <enter> again to choice. Movement with yellow color is invisible, press <V> to draw visible and <T> to take drawing into array. Some keys are not implemented now. <Esc> ends. Or <Ctrl + C> at any point to immediate end.

Problems are in the subs "showsmall" and "showbig". I believe i have taken a completely false approach there. Who can do better?

Thanks, BasicCoder2 tor the editor you gave me here:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=26454&p=243879#p243879

You and Pullen are using the same "draw sublanguage", but in another way. I made a glyph for Saturn with your Editor, but in another size:

Code: Select all

"BM-57,-135M+1,+190BM-34,-161M+68,+0BM-28,+66M+29,-1M+41,-1M+12,+17M+1,+33M+0,+24M+2,+26M+7,+17M+13,+1M+9,-3M+4,-7"


Pullen:

Code: Select all

"BH3R2NUNR2D4ND2E2RFDGDF"     


You are using absolute coordinates ("M") while Pullen uses relative ones.

The fun goes on. :-)

I thought mine was relative that is why you can rotate it?
It has been a long time since playing with DRAW strings. I remember writing an absolute to relative converter for such strings.
I found the DRAW command too limiting thus wrote my own macro language which added things like line thickness.

Right, i made a mistake. With the "-" and "+" it means these values become added. So there are three systems for the coordinates.

With "M" you specify x and y separated by comma. This is possible absolute and relative (with "+" and "-"). For the second relative you only need direction and number of steps like "L5" for left five steps.

Limited, yes, somehow. Graphics made with it sometimes look oldfashioned. I believe this is because it is complicated to create the strings. If you look at Astrolog, Venus and Mercury are already good, but Jupiter and Saturn could be made better.

Sometimes i think it's maybe not worth the effort to invest much time in DRAW. Because with .png files it is all much quicker made. But my feeling says, this system has potential that was seldom used before. With a good editor it must be possible to get good results. At the end we have the fastest graphics ever.
