Configuring the engine
The design of the PACS engine is such that it is possible for the user
to control some part of the operations of the engine. For example, whether
or not to use the graphical interface.
The engine has a series of game modes which can easily be set. This can
be done at the end of the PACS.mod file which is contained in the PACS
files. The name of the different options has been chosen so as to be as
clear as possible. In addition some comment has been supplied to avoid
It is also inside the PACS.mod file that the arena can be defined in what
we call the game configuration. This is done using a simple but clear text
representation of the arena. By default we provide three arenas in the
PACS.mod file. The configuration of the arena using text is depicted here.
As you can see you need to specify the dimension of the arena explicitly.
Do not forget this!!! Moreover, you can specify a initial setup of the
objects in the arena (set plElFromInput TRUE).
