Solitare Game

This directory contains the postscript for the chapter describing the solitare application written in Java. The purpose of this chapter (and program) is to illustrate the power of inheritance as a technique for software reuse and customization.

The program was originally written in C++ in the first edition of my OOP book, and rewritten in Java for the second edition. The version given here is a revision of the Java version, now using features of the language from the 1.1 revision.

The source consists of three files:

So far, this has only been written as an application. (An applet version in Java 1.0.2 was described in the 2nd edition of the OOP book). I'm thinking that later I may describe how to write it in either form.
