DescriptionWator is the result of an assigment we got during a course of Bioinformatics in 1997 while we were studying Biology. We were taught Turbo Pascal during the course, and the final project we got from the teachers. We had to create a simulation like this: ~WATOR SHARKS AND FISH WAGE AN ECOLOGICAL WAR ON THE TOROIDAL PLANET WATOR. THIS PROGRAM IS A SIMULATION OF FLUCTUATIONS IN MAGNITUDE OF FISH AND SHARK POPULATIONS ON A PLANET SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE STARS. THE SHARKS TRY TO SURVIVE BY EATING THE FISH AND THE FISH TRY TO AVOID THIS. TO HELP THE FISH SURVIVE THE VIRTUAL OCEAN CONTAINS A LAGOON WHICH IS FORBIDDEN TERRITORY FOR THE SHARKS. THE GENERAL IDEA BEHIND THIS PROGRAM IS THAT :     Press <Enter> to continue REPEAT THE SHARKS EAT FISH TO EAT AND BREED WHICH RESULTS IN A LARGER SHARK POPULATION. THIS CAUSES THE FISH POPULATION TO DECREASE RAPIDLY. NOW LESS FISH IS AVAILABLE AND SOME SHARKS DIE OF STARVATION. SINCE A DEAD SHARK CAN''T EAT NO MATTER WHERE HE IS IN THE UNIVERSE THE FISH POPULATION GETS A CHANCE TO INCREASE. UNTIL THIS STORY IS CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD. I coded the UI, load/save and chart routines, while Captain did the engine and animation stuff. The sprites were drawn by Rogue. Source code included.
