Abstract : The paper gives a description of POGO, a fully operational system for easy interactive computer graphics programming. POGO is well suited to the interplay of computational programs with alphanumeric and curve input and display, though not to highly dynamic interplay with geometric manipulations. The POGO system includes: (1) A design program for composing control displays at the graphics console and interfacing them to a FORTRAN program. (2) A program to trace curves via the RAND Tablet into specified FORTRAN arrays. (3) A program to output curves from specified FORTRAN arrays onto the 2250 display screen. A glossary of computer graphics terminology is appended.
