Berkeley Logo (UCBLogo)

Berkeley Logo (download manual) (download readme) is a freeware interpreter that I wrote along with several students. (Major contributors are Daniel van Blerkom, Khang Dao, Michael Katz, Douglas Orleans, and Sanford Owings.)

Also consider David Costanzo's FMSLogo, an updated version of George Mills' MSWLogo, a multimedia-enhanced version for MS Windows based on Berkeley Logo. Or Andreas Micheler's aUCBLogo, a rewrite and enhancement of UCBLogo.
