       canfield, cfscores - the solitaire card game canfield


       If you have never played solitaire before, it is recommended that you
       consult a solitaire instruction book. In Canfield, tableau cards may be
       built on each other downward in alternate colors. An entire pile must
       be moved as a unit in building. Top cards of the piles are available to
       be played on foundations, but never into empty spaces.

       Spaces must be filled from the stock. The top card of the stock also is
       available to be played on foundations or built on tableau piles. After
       the stock is exhausted, tableau spaces may be filled from the talon and
       the player may keep them open until he wishes to use them.

       Cards are dealt from the hand to the talon by threes and this repeats
       until there are no more cards in the hand or the player quits. To have
       cards dealt onto the talon the player types 'ht' for his move.
       Foundation base cards are also automatically moved to the foundation
       when they become available.

       The command 'c' causes canfield to maintain card counting statistics on
       the bottom of the screen.  When properly used this can greatly increase
       one's chances of winning.

       The rules for betting are somewhat less strict than those used in the
       official version of the game.  The initial deal costs $13.  You may
       quit at this point or inspect the game.  Inspection costs $13 and
       allows you to make as many moves as possible without moving any cards
       from your hand to the talon.  (The initial deal places three cards on
       the talon; if all these cards are used, three more are made available.)
       Finally, if the game seems interesting, you must pay the final
       installment of $26.  At this point you are credited at the rate of $5
       for each card on the foundation; as the game progresses you are
       credited with $5 for each card that is moved to the foundation.  Each
       run through the hand after the first costs $5.  The card counting
       feature costs $1 for each unknown card that is identified.  If the
       information is toggled on, you are only charged for cards that became
       visible since it was last turned on.  Thus the maximum cost of
       information is $34.  Playing time is charged at a rate of $1 per

       With no arguments, the program cfscores prints out the current status
       of your canfield account.  If a user name is specified, it prints out
       the status of their canfield account.  If the -a flag is specified, it
       prints out the canfield accounts for all users that have played the
       game since the database was set up.

       /usr/games/canfield the game itself
       /usr/games/cfscores the database printer
       /var/lib/bsdgames/cfscores    the database of scores

       It is impossible to cheat.
