# Programming CryptoPunks & Copypastas with Ruby - Step-by-Step Booklet / Guide

Hello,

I have started with a new (free online) booklet in the crypto
collectible series titled
Programming CryptoPunks & Copypastas Step-by-Step Book / Guide -
Inside Unique Pixel Art on the Blockchain... [1]

The first two chapters so far:

- Mint Your Own Punks in Original 24x24 Pixel Format or With 2X / 4X / 8X Zoom
- Statistics, Statistics, Statistics - Calculate Rarity & Popularity
By Type, By Accessories, & More - Inside the 10 000 Punk Population

Cheers. Prost.

Hello,

I added a new chapter titled:

Inside the Punk Art Machinery - How To Generate 10 000 Punks (and
Punkettes), Algorithmically - Paint by Numbers [1]

Let's code the artist known as generate_punk - a method that
returns a (ready-to-save) punk image from the attribute parts coded as
numbers starting at 1. If the code is 0 then the (optional) part gets
skipped:

codes = [2, 2, 2, 3, 1, 0, 10, 1]
punk = generate_punk( codes )
punk.save( './punk-0000.png' )

And here's the magic paint by number art machinery...

Cheers. Prost.

Hello,

it seems that an extra '%5B1b' was appended on the url?

Thanks for the errata. Sorry - I mostly use an online email program
(and the no text formatting is always checked) but somehow some links
still get messed up - not sure what I can do. Cheers. Prost.
