Ken Arnold

Contribution

Ken Arnold put together a library of routines which allowed programs to do "cursor addressing", which means the programs could put a character at a specific location on the computer screen. There were still no real "graphics", but now you could use letters, numbers, and symbols to simulate pictures. The library of software routines was called "curses".

Why is the picture on a Playing Card
