MicroWorlds Pro Now Available for Macintosh

LCSI has announced the release of MicroWorlds™ Pro for the Macintosh. It is virtually identical to MicroWorlds Pro for Windows, which has been available for over a year.

Improvements over MicroWorlds 2.03 include enhanced drawing tools and the ability to handle many types of media files. It is easier to create Web pages. Data may be exchanged with Microsoft Excel™. There are several new features that facilitate project development, Logo programming, and debugging. Procedures and a page can be viewed at the same time. A Project Tab gives you a visual display of the objects in your project and a Processes Tab shows which processes are active at any given moment.

MicroWorlds Pro comes with an extensive collection of media files: music, pictures, sounds, and video. There is a comprehensive on-line help system and the projects library on LCSI's web site continues to grow. Contact LCSI for ordering information.
