Xmine

The `Athena’ port of the xminesweeper game

xmine is an X11-based version of the popular PC game Minesweeper. The object is to place flags on mines on the game board without exposing them.

xmine is freely redistributable. It’s mostly Xlib-based, but it requires Motif libraries for the menus.

This version of xmine is based on Paul Falstad’s version 1.0.3, as published in comp.sources.x. It has been heavily munged to work without OSF/Motif.

Since the game itself has some 3D look, linking against the famous Xaw3d library is highly recommended.
