Repeating Commands

Sometimes you want to repeat a set of commands over and over to create a pattern. Use the flow menu blocks to repeat commands to the turtle.

Working with one of the flow commands, repeat, makes the turtle repeatedly draw lines.

Any commands that are attached to the repeat will be repeated the number of times specified by the number on the top.
