| XVmines is a simple minesweeper game for X Window System.
xvmines creates a rectangle on the screen, divided into equally
sized cells. Each cell may contain a mine (hence the name xvmines),
contain a number indicating the number of mines present in the
8-neighboring cells or be empty.
Initially, all cells are covered with tiles. A tile can be
removed, uncovering the cell below, by clicking the left mouse
button on it. In addition,a cell can be marked as containing a mine
by clicking the right mouse button on it. Note however that marking
a cell as containing a mine does not necessarily mean that the cell
really contains a mine!
Clicking the middle mouse button on a tile, marks it with a
question mark, acting as a reminder mechanism. The user can use the
numbers in the uncovered cells to find (or sometimes guess ...)
which cells contain mines and which do not.
A game ends when all cells not containing mines have been
uncovered and all cells containing mines have been marked, or when
a cell containing a mine is uncovered.
