Scratch — An easy to use interactive programming environment for ages 8 and up.


Scratch is an easy, interactive, collaborative programming environment designed for creation of interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and sharing these on the web. Scratch is designed to help young people (ages 8 and up) develop 21st century learning skills. As they create Scratch projects, young people learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also gaining a deeper understanding of the process of design. This man page contains basic information about Scratch. For additional information, see the Scratch website at http://scratch.mit.edu.


Options are set through the .scratch.ini file in the user's home directory. For instructions on how to edit this file, see http://info.scratch.mit.edu/Network_Ins….
