.SPK File Association 3

Source file written in Artspeak, a computer language used to create a graphical output; contains simple text-based statements that are referenced to draw shapes, lines, patterns, etc.

More Information

Artspeak was originally developed in 1970 by Jacob Schwartz. The language only ran on the CDC 6600, which was a supercomputer created by Seymour Cray. It was used to produce a graphical design on a sheet of paper. The language eventually faded away but was brought back in 2012 by Ron Schnell. It can now be used to produce a .PNG graphic instead of a sheet of paper.

NOTE: The SPK file can be created and loaded to display the graphical output using the Artspeak Interpreter web program.
