Cyno's Role-Play: Cyno's Dice


Cyno DICE is originally produced for my HP 48 SX scientific calculator to be used away from the comfort of my home. After attending attending school at KU--being away from home for 4 year--I lost track of where my real dice went.

The OS/2 REXX seems to be a much easier, but extremely powerful, script language to program, compared to DOS batch files. I was able to produce Cyno DICE for OS/2 without more than a few line of codes.

Unfortunately, the PC industry seems to be moving toward Windows 95, and maybe even Windows NT. Linux became an extreme popular operating system because of the speedy development of the Internet. Cyno DICE CGI was produced to reach an overwhelming number of users on the Internet, no matter what platform the web browsers are running on.
