I need source code (or a reference to it)in Visual C++ 4.0,or UNIX C, or Think Pascal for a checkers game where only 2 humans play against each other. It must employ intuitive Graphical User Interface.  It is only a first part of the project. I intend to write the second myself. I am just desparate now as I HAVE to both work and study full time. On the other hand I am not familiar with graphics.
I will only use it for academic purposes - NO COMERCIAL USE.
Many of may think it is unethical. But I am just desperate
please help me!

Well, I can help you with the checkers source but not the GUI
part.  You can get a public domain checkers program written in
ANSI Standard C (so it'll work in UNIX C or any C) at
ftp://intranet.ca/usr/synapsis/gamedev/archer03.zip
It's public domain by Carey Bloodworth and has been tested on
a PC and Amiga and works fine.

Hope this helps,
Delirium

Well it was a good try, but I need GUI, and the program should not have any huristics, thus only two humans can play. A human cannot play against a computer. It should dissalow users to make illegal turns and it should detect the end of game.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

emmons, I want to pay!  And I will increase points significanltly if I get the answer I want. Thank you for your proposed answer...
I regret that I have to reject it...  Please read my question carefully...  I need a very simple program in C or C++ or Pascal.
The program should not be able to perform complicated searches in order to calculate a move, although GUI is important.  It should not be able to play against a human.  I realize it is a hard question to answer.  I spent myself many hours on the Web.  I found a lot of complex stuff, but nothing simple.  The right answer will be rewarded.

Try here.... I haven't really looked at the source, but it's a graphical graphical checkers program and source. Good luck!

Preface I don't like visual development tools that are supposed to write a program for me. Even if it is Xcode and I can use Interface Builder. Yes, it is a perfect tool and has helped me a lot, mainly, in the beginning, when my programs were small…
This is a short and sweet, but (hopefully) to the point article. There seems to be some fundamental misunderstanding about the function prototype for the "main" function in C and C++, more specifically what type this function should return. I see so…
