Dear DialogJIGers,

If you have any hesitation in running up Robocode because you think it's
going to be a lot of work, your concerns are unfounded!  I tried it out
last night, and basically you have an automated installer that sets
everything up in the space of a minute or two, including icons in the start
menu and desktop.  No fiddling with command lines required!

Not only that, but the Robocode software actually includes an environment
for editing and compiling your own robots, and gives a bunch of samples, so
it really is very easy to get into.  It only takes a minute to edit a robot
to make it operate differently, compile it, and set it against a bunch of

In other words, give it a go, if you haven't already - it really has been
made as easy as possible to use.

Btw, a thought about robot names - include your first name in the robot
class name so we can work out who's winning when we run them up together.

Cheers, Sven.
