README for "Code Breaker"

"Code Breaker" is a computerized variation of "MasterMind" (R) (Pressman (R))
I wrote it with GTK+ as a personal project to learn how to program applications
with GTK+ for Linux.

After un-taring and un-gzipping these files, cd into the codebreaker director 
(if you are reading this README, chances are you've already done this).

Now compile the program with the following commands:

	configure
	make
	make install

to compile and install Code Breaker.


If you don't have root access, do

	configure --prefix=/tmp

for instance, or specify other directory than /tmp that you are allowed
to write to (like someplace in your home directory) and enter the same
syntax as above.


If you are trying to build this program after a failed make, or are recompiling
it after altering my code, use the following:

	make clean
	make
	make install


The entire installation of this program can be removed with:

	make uninstall



To play Code Breaker, just type in the name of the executable file
(codebreaker). If you installed it to a directoory that is not in
the PATH environment variable, you must cd to that directory and
only then you can lauch it. You still can add its directory to you
PATH variable. Type export PATH=$PATH:CODEBREAKERDIR, where CODEBREAKERDIR
is the directory to where you have installed th program.

If you are unfamiliar with how to play MasterMind (R), instructions are in 
"doc/HOWTO" (which is viewable from within the program under "Help").

Since this is my first GTK+ program, I would appreciate any feedback on my
code and the application itself.

I can be reached at mberg@nmt.edu
Direct any comments, suggestions, or bug reports to this email address.

I hope you enjoy this program and find it to entertaining and challenging.
