Example 2 - Animating the plotting of different power functions
Suppose that you want to animate the plotting of the functions f(x) = x
1, 2, 3, 4, in the same set of axes. You could use the following program:
«
131 R B 64 R B PDIM
0 2 XRNG 0 20 YRNG
0 4 FOR j
'X^j' STEQ
ERASE
DRAX LABEL DRAW

"
Store this program in a variable called PWAN (PoWer function ANimation).
To run the program press J (if needed) @PWAN.
drawing each individual power function before starting the animation in
which the five functions will be plotted quickly one after the other.
the animation, press \$.

The ANIMATE function as used in the two previous examples utilized as input
the graphics to be animated and their number.
information to produce the animation, such as the time interval between
graphics and the number of repetitions of the graphics. The general format of
the ANIMATE function in such cases is the following:
n-graphs
n represents the number of graphics, {#X #Y} stand for the pixel coordinates
of the lower right corner of the area to be plotted (see figure below), delay is
the number of seconds allowed between consecutive graphics in the
animation, and rep is the number of repetitions of the animation.
