 COMPUTER PATIENCE

     Computer Patience is a compendium of six solitaire card 
games.  The games are some of the less familiar ones, since most 
of the well known patiences are already available as ST computer 
games.
     The program runs in medium resolution only; if you try to
run it in low or high resolution, you will be politely advised of 
your mistake and returned to the desktop.
     You should also note that the program uses quite a lot of 
memory.  If you get an 'Out of Memory' error message, you will 
need to remove some desk accessories, RAMdisks, or whatever, to 
free up some more memory for the program.
     The following files should all be in the same folder for the 
program to run correctly:-

     PATIENCE.PRG
     P.PRG
     ENTER.XBS

     To run the program, double-click on the PATIENCE.PRG icon.  
After the program has loaded you are presented with a mainly 
blank screen with a drop-down menu at the top.  The menu contains 
the following items:-

'Desk': As usual, this contains information about the program, in 
the item 'About Patience', and will also include any desk 
accessories which have been loaded.

'Play': Use this menu to select which of the six games to play.
It also includes 'Quit' to exit from the program and return to 
the desktop.

'Options': There are three items under this menu -
     - 'Help' provides a description of the program and the rules 
of each game.
     - 'Cheat mode' enables a relaxing of the game rules to make 
them easier to complete.
     - 'Clear game' clears the screen and exits from any game 
which is in progress at the time.

     All operations are controlled entirely by the mouse.  The 
'Help' menu selection provides all the necessary information to 
play the games.

     Have fun, and feel free to contact me if you have any 
comments.  My address is in the 'About Patience' item.
