Description:

My programming philosophy is that a program shows its first sign
of failure the moment you have to pick up a user's manual to see
what to do next. With this mind, let me make a few points, and
then you should never have to read this file again. If you do,
leave me a scathing message.

Program Notes:

WordHide.Exe is a word game. It will take a list of up to
20 words (each up to 20 characters in length) that you provide
and hide them in an unpredictable square of random letters.

You determine the list of words. You determine how large or
small the square will be. If you want, the program will save
a list of words for you so you can use them at any time to
create a word-square puzzle. The program will save as many
lists as you want to create.

Once you create the word-square puzzle, you can print it out
on a form that allows you to say who the puzzle is for, and
who it's from.

Considering the processing it has to do to figure out a puzzle,
WordHide is very fast. The various screen displays use a variety
of colors and boxes designed to make the program easy to learn, use,
and understand.

Finally, let me note that this program creates

1) An index file containing the names
of all your wordlists (Word.Dex), and

2) A separate file for each list of words
you want to save (*.Wds)

Therefore, if you use a floppy system (no hard drive), you need to
keep WordHide on a floppy disk by itself. If you use a hard disk
system, you need to keep WordHide in its own sub-directory.

Request:

I love compliments. I welcome critiques. I'm open to suggestions.
I listen to advice. I'll consider criticisms. I'll ignore sarcasm.
I'll seeth over insults. I'll track down threats and squish out
all remaining life. No matter what, I encourage feedback one way
or the other. The bottom line is that it always gives me a wider
perspective on my work to hear someone else's point of view. So
if you have something to say, get in touch with me.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Expectations:

If you find that you use this program regularly, and you're any
kind of lady or gentleman, I know you'd send a miserly $3 for
a program that is commercially worth a lot more than that, so
I won't harp on the matter...

I know you'd NEVER rename it and/or modify it without original
author credit and permission, or represent it or its results
as work not mine, so I won't harp on that, either...

You may use it commercially only with my permission. You may
use it privately to your heart's desire. I wrote it mainly
for you to enjoy. If you want to make money with it,
contact me first.

Finally, if you distribute this program, make sure to include
this .Doc file.
