img The following code will generate a window. To use the resulting window you must either:

  1. Save the script as a .ppm file, and load the folder containing the file into the symbol library, and then drag the symbol onto a wall.
  2. Run the PPM script. Select the result, and turn it into a block. Finally drag the block from the block palette onto a wall.
