Idiosyncrasy:

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 in 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.

Packing List:
*************

This DeduceIt package should contain, at minimum, the following files:

DeduceIt.Exe (The executable program file)
DeduceIt.Doc (This documentation file that you're reading now)
RadCat.Txt (A catalog of other available RAD Software programs)


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


********************
Program Description:
********************

DeduceIt.Exe is a computerized version of a popular number logic game.

The program selects, at random, a three digit sequence of non-
repeating numbers (for instance: 064, or 172, etc.). Each digit will
be unique to the others-- that is, there will not be, for example, two
7's in the number, such as 747. Each player will have 15 attempts to
figure out what the hidden number is. For each guess made, the
computer will tell you:

* The number of digits you guessed correctly, and

* Of that number, how many of them are in their correct position
within the sequence.

Example:

Let's say that the hidden number is 134

Your guess Computer Response
********** *****************

324 2 1 (two correct numbers, one of which
is in the correct position)

534 2 2 (two correct numbers, both of which
are in their correct positions)

134 Got It! 3 3 (all correct numbers, all of which
are in their correct positions)

******************
Using the program:
******************

DeduceIt is Mouse Supported! If you have a mouse and have initiated
the mouse driver, DeduceIt will give you the choice of using mouse
suppport or not.

DeduceIt starts with a title page containing author and copyright
information. Pressing any key then displays the focal point of the
program-- the Main Menu.

The Main Menu has the following options:

*************
Play the Game
*************

If you highlight and choose this option, DeduceIt will ask you
how many people are playing (from 1 to 4 people may play at a
time). When you respond with the number of people playing,
DeduceIt will ask you to enter the names. DeduceIt will then ask
you if the computer can play also. If you respond "Yes" and you
are the only player listed, DeduceIt will ask you if you want the
computer to guess the same hidden number that you are given to
figure out. This is a sort of head-to-head competition between
you and the computer.

Each person, starting with the first entered, is then given a
chance to figure out the number. If you don't guess the number
within 15 attempts, the computer will show you the number, and
pass to the next player, if any. The computer plays last in a
round.

When you indicate you are finished playing as many rounds as you
wish, a scoreboard will show you how well all of you
comparatively played.

If the computer is playing, I can assure you that the part of the
program that knows the hidden number is completely isolated from
the part of the program that tries to figure it out, but my
friends swear that the program cheats. I can assure you that the
solving portion of the program is deadly accurate and merciless;
in other words, the program doesn't have to cheat, and I promise
that it doesn't.

If you wish to Quit the program, simply highlight that option and
press the ENTER key.

Request:

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