      Here is another nice pattern, this time updated mainly by Stefan. It had me mostly baffled because the original used a recursive procedure which Stefan has translated into a Sub, whereas to date I have only used Subroutines. Thanks Stefan Gordon Sweet

      ' Spiders Web original by
      ' J.Harris BBCBASIC
      ' August 1983


      global M, T

      ' the BBC code seemed to use only 16 colours
      data "yellow", "brown", "red", "darkred", "pink", "darkpink", "blue", "darkblue"
      data "green", "darkgreen", "cyan", "darkcyan", "white", "lightgray", "darkgray"
      data "black"

      dim colour$(15)

      for num = 0 to 15
      read color$
      colour$(num) = color$

      T = 1

      ON ERROR GOTO [ErrorHandler]

      prompt "Select Pattern"+chr$(13)+"Pattern 1 or 2"; T
      loop UNTIL T = 1 OR T = 2

      WindowWidth = 650
      WindowHeight = 550
