These programs are text output programs. Some use the
original C before C++. Others use CPP and classes and
methods but the text output is in the main program. The third
is like the second except a method in the class does the
textual output. They are simple as can be and are thus a basis
for anyone who wants to extend them. One uses old
mainframe printer methods for graphics! Also, there are
hDials in C# (
C sharp) using console, forms, and graphics.
