                            Distribution information

        This is a game for the IBM PC family of compatible computers.

        Sherlock is a game of deduction.  It is your task, based upon the
        information available in provided clues, to determine the locations
        of 36 blocks.  Every puzzle can be solved by using the clues to
        eliminate possibilities until the location of a specific block can
        be determined.  Sherlock may be played by a SINGLE person, or a
        TOURNAMENT may be set up, with each person in the TOURNAMENT
        attempting to solve the same puzzle as quickly as possible.  A
        TIME LIMIT may be set if desired.

        Program requirements:
                IBM PC/XT/AT compatible.
                EGA or VGA compatible display adapter (with a minimum of 128K
                        of RAM on the display adapter; early IBM EGA cards
                        will not work).  It will NOT work on CGA, MDA, or
                        Hercules display adapters.
                Microsoft compatible mouse.

        Sherlock 1.1 is being distributed as SHAREWARE. You may use the program

        program with the author or stop using it.  To register the program,

        The distribution files are:
                SHERLOCK.EXE    the game program
                SHERLOCK.DOC    the game documentation/manual
                REGISTER.DOC    a registration form that can be printed
                VENDOR.DOC      this file of general information

        The game package, which MUST include the files SHERLOCK.EXE (the game),
        SHERLOCK.DOC, and REGISTER.DOC (the registration form) may be
        freely copied and distributed.  These three files may be re-archived
        to better suit a given distribution system, but the files may not be
        modified in any other way.  No distributor may charge more than $6 for
        the distribution of this program, and that fee in no way reduces the
        shareware registration fee owed to the author by the user.

        The entire contents of the four files SHERLOCK.EXE, SHERLOCK.DOC,
        REGISTER.DOC, and VENDOR.DOC are:
