Python turtle Functions
EditRocket provides the following information on turtle functions in the Python source code builder.
backward(distance) - Go backward distance steps.
begin_fill() - Switch turtle into filling mode; Must eventually be followed by a corresponding end_fill() call.
circle(radius[, extent]) - Draw a circle with radius radius whose center-point is radius units left of the turtle.
clear() - Clear the screen.
degrees() - Set angle measurement units to degrees.
delay(delay) - Set the speed of the turtle to delay, which is given in ms.
demo() - Exercise the module a bit.
done() - Enters the Tk main loop.
down() - Move the pen down -- draw when moving.
end_fill() - End filling mode, and fill the shape; equivalent to fill(0).
fill(flag) - The complete specifications are rather complex, but the recommended usage is: call fill(1) before drawing a path you want to fill, and call fill(0) when you finish to draw the path.
forward(distance) - Go forward distance steps.
goto(x, y) -
heading() - Return the current orientation of the turtle.
left(angle) - Turn left angle units.
position() - Return the current location of the turtle as an (x,y) pair.
radians() - Set angle measurement units to radians.
reset() - Clear the screen, re-center the pen, and set variables to the default values.
right(angle) - Turn right angle units.
setheading(angle) - Set the orientation of the turtle to angle.
setup(**kwargs) - Sets the size and position of the main window.
setx(x) - Set the x coordinate of the turtle to x.
sety(y) - Set the y coordinate of the turtle to y.
speed(speed) - Set the speed of the turtle.
title(title_str) - Set the window's title to title.
towards(x, y) - Return the angle of the line from the turtle's position to the point x, y.
tracer(flag) - Set tracing on/off (according to whether flag is true or not).
up() - Move the pen up -- stop drawing.
width(width) - Set the line width to width.
window_height() - Return the height of the canvas window.
window_width() - Return the width of the canvas window.
write(text[, move]) - Write text at the current pen position.
