The turtle module provides turtle graphics primitives, in both object-oriented and procedure-oriented ways. Because it uses Tkinter for the underlying graphics, it needs a version of Python installed with Tk support.

turtle.forward()

The turtle.forward() method is used to move the turtle forward by the value of the argument that it takes. It gives a line on moving to another position or direction. 

turtle.forward(distance)

The argument it takes is distance { a number (integer or float) }. So, it moves the turtle forward by the specified distance, in the direction the turtle is headed.

Below is the implementation of above method with some examples :

Example 1:

Python3




# importing packages
import turtle
  
# move turtle forward with 
# distance = 100
turtle.forward(100)

Output :

Example 2:

Python3




# importing package
import turtle
  
  
# move the turtle forward by 50
turtle.forward(50)
  
# change the direction
turtle.right(90)
  
# move the turtle forward by 50 again
turtle.forward(50)

Output :
