early graphics







Here are photos of my early graphics developed in 1976 on IBM 360 computer.

Graphics were developed using FORTRAN IV programming language and printed on the line text printer that could print only characters.

Programs appeared in the form of punched cards, and there was no screen to check how the graphics looks like before printing. Therefore process of producing interesting visual shapes was quite slow.
