       gvrng - An interactive, introductory programming language.


       gvrng [world file | program file]


       Guido van Robot is a project developed by advanced high school students
       for use by their peers as a learning tool and precursor to the  further
       study  of  programming  with  Python.  It is a minimalistic programming
       language providing just  enough  syntax  to  help  students  learn  the
       concepts  of  sequencing, conditional branching, looping and procedural
       abstraction. It’s biggest strength is that it permits this learning  in
       an environment that combines the thrill of problem-solving with instant
       visual  feedback.  In  short,  it  is  an   interactive,   introductory
       programming  language that is excellent for learning the basic concepts
       of programming, applicable in any high-level  language.  Best  of  all,
       it’s a whole lot of fun, too!

       At  this  point,  you  are  probably  asking  yourself, "What is GvRng,
       specifically?" The gist of it is that it is a robot  represented  by  a
       triangle  on the screen that moves around in a world made up of streets
       and avenues, walls and "beepers", which Guido can collect or  set.  His
       actions are completely guided by a program written by the user.
