;; @module reversi.lsp
;; @description a simple version of Reversi: you as white against newLISP as black
;; @version 0.1 alpha August 2007
;; @author cormullion
;; 2008-10-08 21:46:54
;; updated for newLISP version 10. (changed nth-set to setf)
;; this now does not work with newLISP version 9!
;; This is my first attempt at writing a simple application using newLISP-GS.
;; The game algorithms are basically by
;; Peter Norvig
;; and all I've done is translate to newLISP and add the interface...
;; To-Do: work out how to handle the end of the game properly...
;; To-Do: complete newlispdoc for the functions
