  • I remember the exact same program for the Apple II in BASIC. I never understood how it worked. (Hey, I was in fourth grade! :) )

    In fact, I thought of that program before you even wrote that paragraph.

    I always wanted to have a program that worked like that but had the ability to "forget." I tried to make that work in a similar (but simpler) BASIC program in eighth grade. Too bad I didn't have Perl and Tie::Hash::Cannabinol then. :)

    • Found this [csupomona.edu] while Googling. It's Prolog and doesn't learn.
    • Here is the original Animals Integer Basic program source code:

      0 GOTO 1000

      100 CUR = 1 : REM HERE IS WHERE PROGRAM IS PLAYED
      110 PRINT OP$
