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,

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.

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.
