Stand-alone programs


saGAMES is a stand-alone program with games for the S/370 and ESA/390 architectures. I usually refer to it as "the most useless software ever written" :-)

In its current version, saGAMES implements two games: tic-tac-toe and SUDOKU. The SUDOKU solver logic has been taken from the sudoku-1.0.1 package for Unix/Minix by Michael Kennett.

It runs on S/370 (both in basic-control mode and in extended-control mode), ESA/390 and z/Arch machines (or emulators). The distribution includes program images to IPL from card-readers, tape/cartridge units and, only for ESA/390 and z/ architectures, CD/DVD-reader. It can also be IPLed from DASD.
