If thats all you wanted to know, there you go. You may copy, modify, or
distribute this program freely. If you decide to do something with it and
somehow make a lot of money (doubt it seriously), great. I don't need any
credit whatsoever. So, have fun.

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

DISCLAIMER -
This program is granted as-is. If you use it, you assume all risk. I will
not in any way be hold responsible for this program or any damages produced as
a result of using this program. If you don't like the terms, please don't use
the program.

Other stuff:
This program was just an attempt to get the computer to solve a blocks game
that my father in-law had. I attempted a few different algorithms, but could
not solve it in under an hour. I Never let any of my algorithms go that long,
but assumed by their slow progression that it would take much longer. In
addition, I know someone else who was trying to solve this problem and he was
unable to (at least at last chat) find a solution set under 2000 moves. Since
my father in-law solved it in about 20 minutes, I am assuming that the most
moves he made was under 2000. If you attempt to use this code as a challenge,
please write me and tell me if you solve it in under 2000 moves. It will take
some serious thinking as to the best approach. BTW, the other person I know
who was working on this program had one program running over a week non-stop.
This program was only designed for a challenge, so I spent little time
working on the interface. If you want to make the program better, it could
actually be a semi nice program if someone took the time to make a nice
interface.

Welp, that's it.
