       greed - eat a game field until you run out of moves


       greed [-s]


       The object of Greed is to erase as much of the screen as possible by
       moving around in a grid of numbers. To move your cursor, simply use
       your arrow keys or the the 'hjklyubn' keys or your numberic Your
       location is signified by the @ symbol.

       When you move in a direction, you erase N number of grid squares in
       that direction, N being the first number in that direction. Your score
       reflects the total number of squares eaten.

       Greed will not let you make a move that would have placed you off the
       grid or over a previously eaten square. If no valid moves exist, your
       game ends.

       Other Greed commands are 'Ctrl-L' to redraw the screen, 'p' to toggle
       the highlighting of the possible moves, and 'q' to quit.

       The only ommand line option to Greed is '-s' to output the high score


       Greed will detect color curses(3) support at compilation time. If you
       have it, Greed will generate the board in color, one color to each of
       the digit values. This will also enable checking of an environment
       variable GREEDOPTS to override the default color set, which will be
       parsed as a string of the form:


       where <cn> is a character decribing the color for digit n. The color
       letters are read as follows:

                b = blue,
                g = green,
                c = cyan,
                r = red,
                m = magenta,
                y = yellow,
                w = white.

       In addition, capitalizing a letter turns on the A_BOLD attribute for
       that letter.

       If the string ends with a trailing :, letters following are taken as
       game options. At present, only 'p' (equivalent to an initial 'p'
       command) is defined.


           Default location of Greed high scores.

       This really ought to be an X game, but that would have been too much
       like work.
