    This software program is based on the well-known problem “Towers of Hanoi”.

    The program is created to demonstrate ReXX program’s flexibility and portability.

    You are encouraged to modify this program to make it run on your ReXX interpreter, on the device you are using.

    To make sure that it is maintained properly, I am inviting you to send me your modifications which I will apply on my copy and release it back to more people.

    Click here to download it, then unzip and run this software program, as is. If the unzipped file “endless.rex” does not run as prescribed, with your help, we may be able to make it work with the ReXX interpreter and the device you are using.

    Supported Platforms, as of the last update, on the 13th January of 2018.

    Trucker is a game program, written by Hughes Glantzberg. The game allows you to work a as a truck driver to move goods in an 18-wheeler from Los Angeles to New York for profit. You are presented with several choices in the beginning and throughout the game. Examples of the choices are the routes to take (Northern, Middle or Southern), whether to replace some of the tires, what type of cargo to load, how much to load, how fast to drive, when to rest, etc. While this is text-based, it is quite remarkable how much it makes you feel as a real trucker.

    The game was originally written in BASIC, which I converted in ReXX soon after I found a copy of this program in 1988. I later tried to make it as such that it could be run as is on any ReXX interpreter, on any device.

    Click here to download Trucker, then unzip and run it as is. If the unzipped file “Trucker.rex” does not run, we may be able to make it work with the ReXX interpreter and the device you are using, with your help.

    Have fun with the game and the ReXX codes.
