# Turtle Star

A very simple Turtle program. Turtle can draw intricate shapes using programs that repeat simple moves.

Turtle graphics is a popular way for introducing programming to kids. It was part of the original Logo programming language developed by Wally Feurzig and Seymour Papert in 1966.

Imagine a robotic turtle starting at (0, 0) in the x-y plane. After an import turtle, give it the command turtle.forward(15), and it moves (on-screen!) 15 pixels in the direction it is facing, drawing a line as it moves. Give it the command turtle.right(25), and it rotates in-place 25 degrees clockwise.

• color() sets pencolor and fillcolor.
• speed() sets the turtle’s speed to an integer value in the range 0..10
• setpos() moves turtle to an absolute position. If the pen is down, draw line.
• begin_fill() is called just before drawing a shape to be filled.
• forward() moves the turtle forward by the specified distance, in the direction the turtle is headed.
• left() turns turtle left by angle units.
• end_fill() fills the shape drawn after the last call to begin_fill().
```#   Turtle Star
#   Turtle can draw intricate shapes using programs that repeat simple moves.

from turtle import *
size=790
color('green', 'blue')
speed('fastest')
setpos(-size/2,-32)
start=pos()             # Note starting position
begin_fill()
while True:
forward(size)
left (170)
if abs(pos()-start) &amp;lt; 1:    # have we come back to start?
break
end_fill()
done()
