Puzzler's Companion v1.1 for Amiga OS4
by Paul Townsend
AmigaOne Productions

Puzzlers Companion is an aid to solving Crosswords,  Anagrams and the
"Countdown" TV Show Numbers and Letters games.

Written with Hollywood Designer on an Amiga Sam 440ep.
Tested on OS4.1,  but should work on 4.0 but this is untested by me.

Puzzlers Companion was originally written on an Amiga 500 (In AMOS IIRC) ,  but
only had the word games,  an Amiga 500 was just not powerfull enough to do the
maths required for the numbers game,  it would have taken far to long to get
your answer.  
Later,  the program was re-written to run on (Warning bad word coming.......)
Windows with Visual Basic.  And now,  we have come back full circle with an
Amiga Version again.  

Puzzlers Companion has always been used as my test program when I am learning to
use a new development system, as it uses some pretty neat string handling and
mathematics to make it all work.   So here we are with my 1st Hollywood Project.

Comments for improvements or bug reports welcome !

Thanks for trying out my little program :-)

1. Clicking quit closes faster, it used to wait a few seconds before closing
(You can still press ESCAPE for a fast exit

2. User input routines re-written,  now uses a custom input instead of a
requester box

3. Program now runs in a window instead of taking over the whole screen

4. Now uses better fonts instead of the default

5 Various graphical glitches fixed.


Some more graphical glitches fixed,  mainly that on v1.1 that the numbers game
did not clear the screen afterwards,  so a new calculation would overwrite the
last, corrupting the screen.  Also the "Use Page Up / Down" message was not
always being removed when no longer needed.
