<p>
This is Freecell Solver - a program that automatically solves layouts of
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FreeCell">Freecell</a> and similar
variants of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solitaire">Card
Solitaire</a> such as Eight Off, Forecell, and
Seahaven Towers, as well as
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Simon_%28solitaire%29">Simple
Simon</a> boards. Freecell Solver is
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_and_open_source_software">free
and open source software</a> freely available under the
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License">MIT/X11 License</a>.
It is written in ANSI C and requires a C compiler to be built.  Nevertheless,
binaries for Microsoft Windows 32-bit are available.
</p>

<p>
Included with the archive is source code for programs that can automatically
feed it with the boards of several popular Solitaire Implementations.
</p>

<p>
Freecell Solver can also be built as a library for use within your own
Solitaire implementations. A more detailed list of features can be found
in the <a href="features.html"><b>Features List</b></a>.

patsolve</a> - a program by Dr. Tom Holroyd that solves Freecell and
Seahaven Towers games. There are some fundamental differences between its
architecture and that of Freecell Solver, so it might be worthwhile to take a
look. I've done some modifications on it to fix some build bugs.
