TWO INTERACTIVE AND FUN APOLOGETICS PROGRAMMES
Professor Montgomery has created the following two programs using the classic Pascal programming language.
Programme One: What's
Your Religion Like?
Programme One: What's Your Religion Like?
To work this programme, the following numbers in parentheses should be employed (we suggest that you print off this list so as to have the key numbers identified as you run the programme):
FIRST QUESTION: (1) If the religion is based on primary source historical
documents concerning its founder;
SECOND QUESTION: (1) If there is solid testimonial evidence of the founder's
life and work;
THIRD QUESTION: (1) If miraculous activity on the part of the founder
is attested by sound eyewitnesses;
FOURTH QUESTION: (1) If the founder died;
2) Copy either or both of the Pascal programmes below to your desktop; click on the icon for the programme you wish to play.
Programme One: What's
Your Religion Like?
3) Highlight the entire text of the programme and copy it . (In the title bar, click on "Edit," then "Copy" in the pull-down menu).
4) Open Think Pascal. In its title bar click on "File" and in the drop-down menu click on "New." Another screen will appear. Place your cursor at the top left of this screen and click on "Edit" in the title bar, then on "Paste" in the drop-down menu. The text of the programme will be copied to this new screen. You may now remove the original programme folder from your desktop by dragging it to your hard drive for future use (for example, should you later wish to transfer it to another computer).
5) In the title bar, click on "Project," then "New Project." A small window will appear. Make sure "Desktop" is seen at the top. Type in "JWM" or "JWM-1" (or your own designation for the programme) in the box at the bottom. Click "Create." Another small window will appear; don't concern yourself with it.
6) Click anywhere on the large window containing the programme (it will be named "Untitled").
7) In the title bar, click on "Project," then, in the drop-down menu, click on "Add ŰUntitled'." Another small window will appear. Make sure desktop is seen at the top of that window. Type in "JWM.1" or JWM-1.1" (or your own designation, followed by ".1" to distinguish it from what you typed above, in step 5). Click "Save."
8) Click anywhere on your large project screen (now named "JWM.1"ˇor whatever you designated it).
9) In the main title bar, click on "Run," and in the drop-down menu, "Run" again.
10) A small window named "Text" will appear. Expand it to full screen size by clicking on the tiny box next-to-the right in that window's title bar. Now you can go through the project, answering the series of questions which appear in the Text window. Try the project with a variety of answers. Remember that a given project must be fully completed before it will allow you to exit the programme or repeat it.
11) When you have finished and wish to exit the programme, simply close the "Text" window, then go to the title bar and click "Project," followed by "Close Project"; next, hit "Cancel" in the smaller window that then appears. Finally, close Think Pascal.
12) Observe that two icons for your project will remain on your desktop
with the labels "JWM" and "JWM.1" (or whatever you have
chosen as labels). These can now be used to run the project on subsequent
occasions without going through the entire procedure described above: just
click on the ".1" desktop icon (Think Pascal will automatically
open); then click on "Project" and "Open Project" in
the title bar; choose "JWM" from the desktop list, and click "Open." Now
(as before) go to the Think Pascal title bar and click "Run," followed
by "Run"ˇagainˇin the drop-down menu. Expand the Text windowˇand
you are on your way to running the programme as often as you wish!
