karel: Learning programming with Karel the robot

This is the R implementation of Karel the robot, a programming language created by Dr. R. E. Pattis at Stanford University in 1981. Karel is an useful tool to teach introductory concepts about general programming, such as algorithmic decomposition, conditional statements, loops, etc., in an interactive and fun way, by writing programs to make Karel the robot achieve certaing tasks in the world she lives in. Originally based on Pascal, Karel was implemented in many languages through these decades, including 'Java', 'C++', 'Ruby' and 'Python'. This is the first package implementing Karel in R.
