==== Description: ====
I apologize if this is a duplicate submission; an earlier attempt seems to
have gone off to outer space.

This program uses a single computer to poll 20 keyboards, giving all students
in a class simultaneous access to the machine.  Each student has a designated
area of a common projected display in which to work. Activities include
real-time competition in addition, subtraction, 
multiplication and division facts, touch keyboarding, and rudimentary word
processing.  A further subroutine allows students to check the accuracy of
their math calculations when doing written work from a textbook or worksheet.

The source code is written in C.  The binary is invoked by a shell script
from one of 9 directories, each of which maintains records for an entire
class.  So the program can serve up to 9 classes.


Runs under Gnu/Linux with modified 2.6.23 kernel.  May be used with
unmodified kernel, but will not support more than 15 keyboards. 

gcc 4.1.2, GNU Make 3.81, and (possibly) vgalib-devel-1.9.25 for compilation
and installation.

At this time (28 Aug 08) there is no configuration file, but a hand written
Makefile with make, make install, and make uninstall sems to work tolerably

==== Other Software Required: ====
Gnu Make


Looks like maybe a problem with svga licensing; I am working on an
alternative that uses ncurses instead of SVGA, but it is less satisfactory in
some ways.

==== Other Comments: ====
I assume a little common sense with regard to license headers; this program
has a gazillion little files.  I think I have covered the important ones.
