Pen Eraser

There must be a reason we don't have this, but there should be an eraser for the pen. Maybe

eraser down ::pen

eraser up ::pen

I though of this because someone in the Help With Scripts wanted to know how to erase snake tails, and I told him to record X and Y in a list and come by with an eraser and cover it with the backdrop color… But what if the backdrop is different colors? A workaround I can picture would still distort the backdrop. I imagine this would simply use a function similar to “clear,” but focus only on a small portion of the screen.

Support. The eraser blocks should be merged with the pen though like
[pen v] up :: pen
[pen v] down :: pen

Season 4 has officially released I'll go make a better signature soon

Covered that in the OP–what about when the backdrop is different colors?

Constantly track what the current color of the backdrop is?

Again, as in the OP–that'd distort the backdrop. By this, I mean, what if one backdrop has different colors on it, like red and blue? If you used “if touching color” for red and blue to set the appropriate pen color, it would distort the backdrop, as the pen would have to be big enough to be effective. Only single-pixel pen sizes would work when transitioning from color to color, and those aren't very common.

Support, but keep in a dropdown with pen, as CatsU suggested.

Support for
set pen mode to [pen v] :: pen
set pen mode to [eraser v] :: pen
it would also allow the possibility of other pen modes, although I can't think of any right now.

Support for this.

when this block is clicked::sensing hat//FYI, this is my old account that I no longer use. My current account is @DaSpudLord.
forever {do (a [scratch v]::events ring)::sound}::extension cstart
say [what the...?] in (the language of [the moon people v]::red)::control
create [spontaneous v] explosion in [a flea's stomach]::motion
That's not right...::cend
If you are reading this… Then congratulations! You have found the part of my signature that was eaten by a kumquat! (On a side note, you are probably in a kumquat's stomach.) Now get out of the kumquat's stomach and go do something productive with your life. Like playing this game over and over again. Very productive.

This would solve some of the issues with clear I'm having, but not all of them.
