The Monitor is a block added by ComputerCraft. It is a Peripheral that can display text on its front side. When several monitors are placed on the same plane, it will form a single monitor. The maximum size of a single monitor is 8 blocks wide and 6 blocks tall and must be rectangle shaped otherwise it will separate into multiple monitors. It is useful for displaying information in a way that lets others view it without checking the computer manually.

Recipe[edit | edit source]

The Monitor is crafted with eight Stone and one Glass Pane.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The simplest way to use the monitor is to use the command monitor [top|bottom|left|right|front|back] [program]. For example monitor left hello would run the hello world program on a monitor connected on the left side.

The other method to use the monitors involves using ComputerCraft Peripheral and Term APIs
