Pitch for the Palm Pilot, by Colin Mitchell

Years ago, I implemented a version of the card game 'Pitch', also known as
'Setback' for the Palm OS.  The game (like the platform), has
stagnated over the years, but was always reasonably popular, and I am
very happy with it.  I haven't sold a copy in over a year, and I
always though about releasing the code, so as of now, the code is open
sourced under the MIT license:

The code compiles under CodeWarrior, which I don't even have a copy of
anymore.  Perhaps some enterprising hacker can use the code to get it
running elsewhere.


This project was generated by Palm OS Application wizard in
CodeWarrior Development Studio for Palm OS, version 9.0.

The supplied icon is a generic template, supplying a black or blue disc with
a stylus, similar to the default icon used by Palm OS for applications without
icons.  We have provided this as a starting point for your own icon efforts.
