The purpose of this program is to reinforce key pressing and use of the left mouse button. This program is one of several training programs I have written for people diagnosed as autistic. I work with such persons professionally. Small children also seem to like this program. The program cycles through several procedures drawing random shapes of varying complexity on the screen. At random intervals the program makes a sound and stops drawing shapes requiring a key press or a press on the left mouse button to continue.
The length of the random intervals (which defaults to 50) can be changed at the command line when starting the program. (This is a DOS program but should run fine under windows in full screen.)
For example typing SPINKAL2 20 will give shorter intervals; whereas typing SPINKAL2 -1 will disable stopping and the program will run continuously. Pressing C will move the program to the next cycle.
