     This is Eddie's XORer pattern maker optimized for speed. Some optimization methods I used are: careful variable declarations, display update after each line (instead of each pixel), put only what's necessary inside loops and prefetch values. Hope you like it Eddie.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Wow. Thanks Paul for optimizing the code. I thought it was sluggish while I was playing around with it, so I'm keen to see the improvements. It was really smokey where I live (due to the bush fires) so I took a bit of a break due to ill health and some dental issues. You are always welcome to make improvements. I tend to work on too many programs at once, so its good to see how others can make fine adjustments and improvements.

After testing out the code, I see that you fixed the picture retention problem s well as improving the updating per line. There is probably a better way of selecting colours and effects. I was very much experimenting at the time. Thanks Paul for the nice improvements.
