( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I remeber implementing a version of this in basic about ten years ago. What I remember being really fun was telling the program to play itself.

Intitially the two robots played randomly, but then a trend would start to emerge. However, as soon as it did, the feedback would cause the opponent to change his strategy, and the trend would shift or disappear. Gradually the robots learned that there was no 'winning move' and each assigned an equal probability to each move.

I'm sure I was inspired by WOPR's tic-tac-toe game in the classic movie 'Wargames'. Unfortunately, my robots weren't as smart as WOPR, they never realised the sisyphean futility of their game ;)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
