Pynguin is a python-based turtle graphics application.
    It combines an editor, interactive interpreter, and
    graphics display area.

    some programming concepts to beginning programmers.


This release continues to expand basic functionality and
    explores more user-friendly options in the interface.

Pynguin is tested with Python 2.7.1 and PyQt 4.8.3 and
