We briefly review the standard methods used to construct quasiperiodic tilings, such as the projection, the inflation, and the grid method. A number of sample Mathematica programs, implementing the different approaches for one- and two-dimensional examples, are discussed. Apart from small examples, the corresponding programs are not contained in the text, but will be made available in electronic form.
