This is a small collection of some more of my attempts at bashing out
ARexx scripts for the excellent Drawstudio. They don't do anything
particularly fancy, and the interface is a bit naff, but I think they'll
be valuable learning material... even if it does mean that you learn how
NOT to write an ARexx script!

IMPORTANT! Some of these scripts require rexxmathlib.library (available
from Aminet sites at util/rexx/RexxMathLib.lha or on Aminet CD 16).
Additionally, you will also require a macro recorder/player program such
as Oliver Grimm's excellent Recorder (which you can get from Aminet
under util/cli/recorder.lha or from Aminet CD 13). Recorder is required
to work around some of the limitations in DrawStudio's otherwise
excellent and comprehensive ARexx command set.

* NewFlash - Slightly modified version of the original flash effect (as
             seen in Volume one) to give an almost Christmassy look
             (because we're all thinking of Christmas in the middle of
             July, right ?). Anyway try it and see.

* Grid -     Three times winner of the "most boring ARexx script of the
             year" contest, this script simply draws a grid. Nah. You
             don't say!

* FontList - After not being able to track down a decent font preview
             printing program for PostScript fonts, I wrote this. Decent
             it ain't, but it gets the job done!

* NewPie -   Tweaked version of the original (and rather awful) attempt
             at making pie charts. Granted, this one is still pretty
             crappy, but at least it looks a bit more circular!

* Spiral -   Draw them snails with ease with you're very own spiral
             drawing script! This probably got an honourable mention in
             the boring ARexx script contest.

Oh, and if you don't already have DrawStudio and just happen to be
browsing at this ReadMe file for no apparent reason, the go out and buy
it now! Seriously, we don't often get new commercial talent in these
hard times, so please give the demo a try or something and support new
Amiga development.
