Joystick coordinates

The mouse is a little more complicated than the joystick. Here's something to show the coordinates of the joystick, anyway:

10 PRINT "X: ";PDL(0);TAB(9);"Y: ";PDL(1)
20 GOTO 10

The PDL() calls will return a value from 0 to 255 on the X or Y axes of the joystick.

Here's an example of a paint program, written in Applesoft:
